“[I’m a] huge fan of my man Steve Caple Jr. I think he can become the next great filmmaker. [I’m] also, very excited to be working with my former agent and friend Charles King on his first film with his new venture. All great energy around the film, which I believe will yield amazing results,” Nas told Variety.
The verdict is still out on what stars we’ll be giving the film, but one thing that is for sure is that Nas can definitely add a refreshing perspective to the mix in terms to its production and the film’s soundtrack.
