Nick Cannon Lands Big Deal With YouTube For Movie Starring Busta Rhymes, Whoopi and More

(AllHipHop News) Nick Cannon and Busta Rhymes will star alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Louis Gossett Jr., in the upcoming movie “King of the Dancehall.”

Nick’s company, Ncredible Productions, has partnered with YouTube Red to debut the film.

Nick Cannon directed the movie, which premiered earlier this year at the Toronto Film Festival.

“King of the Dancehall” is about a Brooklyn-born guy who is forced to leave his neighborhood and reset his life in Jamaica.

Once on the island, he discovers his passion for dancing while rebuilding his life – with some drama.

“Music and dance are universal themes, and I’m excited to partner with YouTube to bring a story about the world’s sexiest dance tradition to its massive audience,” Nick Cannon, CEO of Ncredible Productions told AllHipHop.com. “This film invites viewers into a vibrant, yet little known world outside the Caribbean – the dancehall – the Jamaican dancehall.

According to Nick, the movie mixes documentary footage from real life dancehall scenes, and features a number of music legends to “bring ‘King of Dancehall’ to life.”

“The King of the Dancehall” will debut on YouTube Red later this year.
