Nas Set to Executive Produce New Erykah Badu Film And Produce Its Soundtrack.

Two musical icons are teaming up for a
new film. Variety reports that Nas will be serving as the executive producer
of Erykah Badu’s new skateboarding film The Land, and also producing the movie’s soundtrack. This news came
amidst the announcement that The Land will be premiering at the legendary Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah
next month. Most of the movie’s content is
still under wraps (it doesn’t even have a
trailer yet), so its not clear exactly what
kind of music Nas will be contributing, but
knowing him, it’s sure to be something special.

According to the Sundance description, the
movie follows four boys who try to escape
life on the streets of Cleveland, Ohio by
pursuing a career in professional
skateboarding. Their friendship is put to the
test after they “get caught up with a local drug queen-pin.” Aside from Badu, the film
is set to feature rapper Machine Gun Kelly, as well as Moisés Arias (best known for playing Rico on Hannah Montana). The Land is written and directed by Steve Caple Jr., whom Nas had great
praise for, saying “[I’m a] huge fan of my
man Steve Caple Jr. I think he can become
the next great filmmaker.” Keep your eye
out for more on this upcoming new film.
