Nas To Executive Produce The Land
Legendary Hip Hop star Nas has signed on to executive produce Erykah Badu‘s indie drama The Land and produce the film’s soundtrack.
The Land, which is slated to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, follows four teenage boys who devote their summer to escaping the streets of Cleveland to pursue professional skateboarding. When they get caught in the web of a local drug queen-pin, their motley brotherhood is put to the test.
Nas shared, “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.”
In addition to Erykah, the film stars Moises Arias, Rafi Gavron, Michael K. Williams, Kim Coates, Machine Gun Kelly, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and Ezri Walker.
Erykah Badu Apologizes To Iggy Azalea
During her #AskBadu Q&A session with fans on Monday, Erykah Badu sorta offered Iggy Azalea an apology for shading her during her “Soul Train Awards” monologue.
In a video response, Erykah said, “You know what? I want to do this for my daughters. I want to apologize to Iggy Azalea because she’s one of their favorite artists and they listen to her all of the time. It’s for them.”
The singer continued, “When I really think about it…if y’all love her so much why don’t ya’ll just go be with her then. Gone be with her y’all! Gone Puma. Gone Mars. Is Iggy Azalea going to miss the healing seminar to go up to the school and sit across from a teacher so she can tell you that all y’all been doing is talking to your neighbor and not getting your lesson?! Is she? Where’s Iggy for that?!”
Watch the hilarious “apology” below.
