Looks likeÂ we can add SouljaÂ Boy to the list ofÂ rappers turned actor.Â AfterÂ justÂ releasing his mixtape, â€œJuice,â€ he announced that he will be playing the role of Bishop played byÂ West Coast rapper Tupac in an upcoming biopic.
Here is what Soulja Boy had to say about his upcoming role:
â€œBasically, itâ€™s your boy Soulja and Iâ€™m Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man. You know how the movie goes, but weâ€™re flipping it and shooting in Atlanta. I want to show these people my acting side and me being creativeâ€”always giving them something new; thatâ€™s all. I got same video director that shot â€˜Crank That,â€™ â€˜Kiss Me Through The Phone,â€™ â€˜Turn My Swag Onâ€™ â€”my most successful videos. The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie.â€
Filming is set to begin soon and I all I can say is “Juice” is a classic so I hope Soulja Boy does this movie justice.
