Speaking briefly with TMZ, Houston's Riff Raff claims that he is going after the creators, or solely James Franco, for the Spring Breakers character Alien - who seems to be based on the appearance and personality of Riff Raff - for $8-10M.

Although initially excited, Riff Raff is now furious and posted a photo of James Franco adorned in more-than similar garments associated with the Houston-based rapper: gold fronts, corn-rows, and brightly colored clothing. Not only that, but Franco is seen standing in front of a wall filled with various pictures of Riff Raff!

"I haven't been compensated for the Spring Breakers interactment [sic] with the James Franco and whatnot. We're seeking eight to 10 million right now. And whatnot."

Riff Raff puts his qualms into perpective for the people of TMZ like this: "It's like if I have a front yard. And you're planting soil and you're planting trees and building peaches and houses and selling parking lots on my property, then I deserve to be compensated for some portion of that money." [TMZ]

Further legal action on the matter is yet to come - stay tuned on Zumic for any future updates. In the meantime check out the official TMZ video below.
