6 Rappers That Should Remake These 5 Movie

Nicki Minaj as Barbarella
It’s only a matter of time before Ms. Minaj shows up on the big screen. After all, she’s a former acting major with theater experience back in her high school years. Plus, in a June interview with New York, Minaj talked about how Meryl Streep is one of two celebrities she’d be starstruck around (the other is Judge Judy). Hollywood has long been flirting with the idea of redoing the campy 1968 sci-fi picture Barbarella, which starred a foxy Jane Fonda. For “Black Barbie” Minaj, it’s a custom built role just waiting for her. Black Barbarella, anyone? And imagine the Young Money princess kicking ass while dressed in form-fitting spacesuits. Have mercy.

    I’m feeling this one (sans Samuel Jackson)…..

    If you can act, then get it on nigga. But if your obvious motivation is to say that you did a movie (Dr. Dre) or you simply wanted to make a quick buck (Master P), then you need to audition and get that rejection letter just like everyone else.

    Some MCs have obvious skills (Mos Def, Will Smith, T.I.) and they are seriously earning their keep. But for the others? I’m like Samuel Jackson on that one.

    most rappers can’t legimately act…only a few real talents come to mind

    ice cube
    will smith
    queen latifah
    mos def
    common (decent)
    rza (decent)

    alot of cats are good for a quick cameo, but not all rappers can act.

    lol I would put Curren$y and Wiz in a Cheech and Chong joint or somethin… How High part 2 lol

      the game is awsome in waist deep with tyrece gibson? and i think he ios in street kings aswell ?

  • Dub

    Alot of ppl sleep on Mos, he was incredible in Something the Lord Made and 16 Blocks… He’s gonna win an Oscar one day bet that. TI’s cool at acting, but he need to calm down a little. He puts his rap swag in his roles and sometimes all that ain’t called for.
