Lil Wayne is ready to expand his career to the Hollywood big screen. The "Lollipop" rapper is set to star in a movie called "Rich Gang", which is developed by Cash Money CEO Birdman.
Announcing the new movie project is Birdman himself who spoke to XXL while attending a book release party for Cash Money Content author Wahida Clark in New York. "We start shooting that in the fall," so he revealed.
Of the film's plot, Baby said, "That's the whole team, that's like a 2012 Balla Blocking. The Rich Gang movie is about the team." He added, "Everybody is going to be the star of it, but Wayne will be the center of it. It's about the team, everybody that's on the label."
Asked if the movie is going to be a scripted or documentary one, the flamboyant CEO responded, "I would like them for just be themselves. I'm not gonna tell no n***a to go to acting school. Just be yourself."
"We're excited as a brand about it," so the New Orleans-born hip hop mogul gushed. "Tyga, everybody is like, 'Stunna, let's do a movie.' We got a few of them lined up and we gonna shoot them."
During the chat, Birdman also expressed his interest to adapt one of Clark's books into the big screen. "When I got her collection, I was amazed at all the books she did already. I said, 'This is somebody I need to het into business with. She's hungry.' I'm looking forward to Wahida writing a script to one of her scripts and turning it into a movie," so he said.
