Since early last year we were given snaps of “Alien”, James Franco’s character in Spring Breakers. His braids and tattoos quickly sparked debate online as to who the inspiration behind the character was. Through other onset snaps, we caught a glimpse of local Florida rapper “Dangeruss” and Franco confirmed his participation in the film when speaking to GQ late last year.

Complex Magazine has now done a follow up piece and have given their two cents into the story. Complex felt it necessary to follow up as rumours had been perpetuating that rapper Riff Raff was the main influence. This is however not the case, despite how much Riff Raff has bragged about it.

You can download Dangeruss’ mixtape “Armed and Dangeruss” from now for free aswell as the video directed by James Franco “Hangin’ Wit The Dopeboys” below.
