Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez have come a long way since Disney Channel, I like it! For those of you that didn’t know, the movie “Spring Breakers” was shot here in St. Pete and Dangeruss was the inspiration for James Franco’s character “Alien,” which makes me want to see it all that much more. We got a chance to talk Dangeruss about how his influence on Franco’s role, Riff Raff trying to steal his credit, his upcoming project, and more!
I told him how its done in the hood, how to talk, how everything works. I couldn’t really take him to where I be because they all had cameras and wanted to film everything. My niggas ain’t wanna be all on camera at the trap.
Mane, me and my dawg had 4 rolled up and almost got him to but he said “naw, they wont let me.”
Riff Raff is a character, he was trying to get some buzz. The “alien” character do look like him, but Riff had no part in inspiring James at all as far as the persona of Alien. Alien is not based on me or my life, I just helped james with the role and gave him some direction. James Franco became a good friend from this.
[“Riff Raff quickly claimed the character was based on him, and that he’d been tapped for the film by Korine himself, but was out of the country, and therefore unable to participate.
“The role I would have played would be like a drug dealer, or the friend of a drug dealer, Gucci Mane” said Riff Raff. I asked him if James Franco was originally supposed to be in the movie as a different character. “James Franco was in the movie, but I was supposed to be in there also. Now James Franco is playing me.”
A few days later, Franco himself swatted down Riff Raff: “None of that’s true.” Also:
I would say the biggest influence on the role was this local Florida rapper named Dangerous [sic]. He’s fairly unknown, but he was down there in the place, living the life, and he became the biggest model for me and he’s in the movie.” –Complex Magazine (Read More)]
Mane, I always been a hungry aspiring artist, this has just become fuel. I’m still the same nigga I been, just close to my dream.
New mixtape called “The Ingredients” drops mid March, just before the movie. I’ll always be a well-rounded artist. Even though most of my mixtape “Armed and Dangeruss” was a lot of dope talk, there was at least 500 metaphors on it. I plan on showcasing my lyrical ability and range a lil more but I’ll always have my trap records no matter what. The first single off the new mixtape is called “Glass” and its gon’ be big! Production crazy!
