Hip-Hop Rumors: Lil’ Wayne The Movie Star?

Birdman is planning to expand into the world of film and plans to cast his “son” Lil’ Wayne as the star of the upcoming film, Rich Gang. Details about the film are sketchy, but it will be one of several film projects via Birdman’s latest business venture, Cash Money Films. Check out what he told‘s Shaheem Reid about the upcoming film.

“We start shooting that in the fall,” Birdman revealed in New York City during a book release party for Cash Money Content author Wahida Clark’s, Payback Ain’t Enough. “That’s the whole team, that’s like a 2012 Balla Blocking. The Rich Gang movie is about the team. Everybody is going to be the star of it, but Wayne will be the center of it. It’s about the team, everybody that’s on the label.”

Birdman wouldn’t reveal if the film will be scripted or a documentary style film, but his confidence in his artist as actors seems very apparent.

“I would like them for just be themselves. I’m not gonna tell no nigga to go to acting school. Just be yourself. We’re excited as a brand about it. Tyga, everybody is like, ‘Stunna, let’s do a  movie.’ We got a few of them lined up and we gonna shoot them.”

    There is a lot of hate tossed LiL Waynes way but remember he is a pawn for the powers that be. Hopefully Wayne will see the light in his later years and give back to the community that has supported him throughout the years. When you come from nothing and get a little change best believe the mind starts playing tricks on you. I remember a quote from wayne that solidified this man has done lost his mind. I quote You get money and you get crazy. I get crazy and I get money. And the biggest difference between you and I is… you love me and I hate you

    • True, but I grew tired of Lil’ Wayne’s strategy of “Having My P.R. Kick Somebody the Hell Out When I Can’t Answer a Question or Nothing Goes My Way” in the doc.
