Rappers And the Famous Roles They Should’ve Played


Last week, the world finally got a glimpse at OutKast’s Andre 3000 in-character as Jimi Hendrix, in a still from the new biopic All Is By My Side. Even though 3 Stacks has always bared a close resemblance to the late Jimi, and this flick was essentially bound to happen, we can’t wait to see what Andre does with it. Meanwhile, with such an influx of rappers getting into the movie industry, we’d love to see what some of our other favorite artists would do with certain roles, so in anticipation of By My Side, XXL pulled together 10 lead characters and replaced them with some of our favorite rappers. Click through our list to check out why Kanye would make a great Indiana Jones and why Action Bronson could be the next Luke Skywalker.
