The soundtrack for Spring Breakers, the upcoming movie from arty-bizarro cult-favorite director Harmony Korine (Kids, Gummo), doesn’t hit streets until next Tuesday, but you can listen to its soundtrack now thanks to a stream at Pitchfork.
As promised (warned?), Skrillex produced the original score for Spring Breakers, which also brings in Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Wacka Flocka Flame, and, interestingly, a collaboration between James Franco and Florida rapper Dangeruss.
Their duet, titled “Hangin’ With Da Dopeboys,” supports Franco’s claim that Dangeruss — not reality star turned rapper and real-life irreality star Riff Raff — served as the inspiration for his Spring Breakers character Alien, a white, spectacularly corn-rowed rapper from Florida.
This won’t please Riff Raff. EW spoke to the rapper about the issue, and he had a lot to say. “James Franco’s image [in the movie] can only be pointed back to one person: me,” said Riff. “That’s Riff Raff. No gangster would dress like that. I’m the only person who would do that. And I’m an icon. I’m a worldwide icon.”
You can read the full story on Riff Raff and Spring Breakers in this Friday’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, and check back here next week for the rest of our interview with the rapper. Until then, head over to Pitchfork to give the movie’s soundtrack a listen.
