A$AP Rocky and the A$AP Mob have been making major moves and big splashes in almost every avenue of dope-ness they can possibly get there hands on. From music to fashion to art, it seems like there is nothing A$AP can’t conquer; and now, you can add film to the list?
A$AP Rocky has been hinting for the last couple of years that Hollywood was calling and acting looked like the next move for him. Fast forward to now, Rocky will get his debut on the big screen at Sundance in Director Rick Famuyiwa’s film “Dope” this week. The film will also feature stars like Zoe Kravitz, Tyga, Vince Staples, and more. The film is produced by Sean Combs, Forest Whitaker, and Pharrell amongst others.
“The main character, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a Nineties hip-hop geek,” Famuyiwa told Entertainment Weekly. “He isn’t a drug dealer or a gang banger. He’s into all types of music, and video games and computers. We’ve seen a lot of films about everything else in these neighborhoods—the crime, the athletes, the gangs—but you don’t see films about the regular kids who have to survive in these streets.”
Get ready to see A$AP Rocky make his cameo in the film “Dope” on the big screen soon. Here is the first trailer for the project. Let us know what you think about it.
