According to gossip site mediatakeout.com, Yeezy will play one of the musicians in the group. The role supposedly comes along with a homosexual love scene. Jay-Z, Will Smith and Oprah Winfrey are all allegedly attached to the film as producers.

As of press time, reps for Kanye West and Will Smith have yet to return emails to XXLMag.com about the film.

    Given straight Kanye’s lack of acting chops, I’d hate to see a stereotypical homosexual Kanye, lol.

    All this shit is “alleged”, I’m expecting one of the so called producers (Jay, Will, and Oprah) to debunk this and for Kanye to throw a bitch fit on Twitter about this.

  • Don mcCaine

    the sad part is the story about this band and their music will be overlooked because people will want to see how gay Kanye “acts”
