Today in Hip Hop News, we announce the unexpected partnering of American rapper, songwriter, and record producer, Kendrick Lamar and “South Park” co creator for a new action packed and comedy movie.
2022 has been fixed as the year Kendrick Lamar will make his hotly anticipated re-visitation of music with a fresh out of the plastic new collection, following up with his 2017's Pulitzer Prize-winning "DAMN" album. Be that as it may, the Compton local's first move of the new year shows that he is branching past rap and back into film.
According to sources, Kendrick will make his cinematic debut alongside his old manager Dave Free and South Park co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who will co-produce an upcoming live-action comedy feature for Paramount Pictures.
The untitled film, written by Vernon Chatman, follows a young Black man interning as a slave reenactor at a living history museum who learns that his white girlfriend's ancestors once owned him.
Matt Stone and Trey Parker are producing for Park County, while Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free are producing for their pgLang company, which they started in 2020. Although a director has yet to be appointed, production is expected to begin this spring.
The film is set to be released in theaters and streamed on Paramount.
While this will be Kendrick Lamar's first film production credit, the 34-year-old rapper has prior expertise behind the camera, having co-directed many of his own music videos with Dave Free as part of the duo The Little Homies, including "HUMBLE.," "Alright," and "ELEMENT."
