Nas will be bringing his music genius to Steve Caple Jr.’s film The Land.
The Queensbridge native will be producing the soundtrack for the film, as well as serve as an executive producer on the project.
The Land follows four teens as they try to use pro skateboarding to escape the streets of Cleveland, to only get sucked in by a local drug queen pin.
The film stars Moises Arias, Erykah Badu, Michael K. Williams, Kim Coates, Rafi Gavron and even Machine Gun Kelly, who is from Cleveland.
“Huge fan of my man Steve Caple Jr. I think he can become the next great filmmaker,” exclaimed Nas. “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.”
The Land will premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January as a part of the Next section.
