ASAP Rocky to make acting debut

ASAP Rocky, the actor?

He’s set to make his debut in a new film titled Dope, starring Forrest Whitaker and Zoe Kravitz (who just finished shooting something with Kid Cudi) with IMDB even listing Tyga, Casey Veggies, and Vince Staples in the credits as well.

The premise surrounds a nerdy high school kid trying to stay out of trouble in Inglewood, California and the first trailer for it is below. We get a small glimpse at ASAP’s character in advance of Sundance, when Dope will be seen for the first time.

“Three Kings and a remix” as Jay Electronica joins Common and Vince Staples on the official redux of “Kingdom”. The three performed the song at the recording of the BET Awards this past weekend and Jay Elect also performed his verse during his set at Sunday’s AAHH! Fest in Chicago. Good vibes, good looks below.
