Parappa the Rapper voice actor accused of scamming fans

"The voice actor behind everyone’s favorite kung-fu chopping, noodle-stomping rapping dog recently got on several fans’ bad side after being accused of scamming fans out of money.

Parappa the Rapper star and professional rap artist Dred Foxx, who has voiced the titular character since its 1997 PS1 inception, had allegedly agreed in late 2012 to record ten lines of dialogue in his Parappa voice for a fanmade animation project by two college students named Jacob Collins and Cameron Perry.

The two students agreed to pay Foxx $100, but several months past with no results. Collins and Perry initially understood Foxx’s rationale for the lack of developments at first, owing it to the effects of Superstorm Sandy in late Oct. 2012 and the rapper’s computer issues. Foxx even said that if he couldn’t do it within a respectable amount of time that he would refund the money. However, after more weeks of in-action and a Facebook post where Foxx asked fans for donations for his broken iPad, the fan animators demanded a refund, threatening legal action." - Patrick Kulikowski
