(AllHipHop Features) Nick Cannon, the media mogul with many hats, has struck gold with his new movie, “King of the Dancehall.” After starring in films like “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”, “Roll Bounce” and “Drum Line”, Cannon definitely knows the recipe to a good young adult movie.
Nick, who plays the character “Tarzan”, goes to stay with his cousin, played by Busta Rhymes, in Jamaica. Tarzan quickly finds a beautiful love interest and gets caught up in the Jamaican Dancehall scene.
Consider “King of the Dancehall” the Black Jamaican version of “Step Up” and “Save The Last Dance”. Its entertaining and has an all star cast. Whoopi Goldberg plays the mother of Tarzan. Louis Gossett Jr. and Kreesha Turner have compelling lead roles and singer Beanie Man narrates the story.
AllHipHop had a chance to catch up with Mr. Cannon at a screening in New York last week. Check out the interview below.
