Lil Scrappy Returns to Acting Via Tyler Perry Movie and TV Series

In 2009, Lil Scrappy began his acting career with a role in the straight-to-DVD movie, Just Another Day, alongside film veterans Wood Harris and Clifton Powell. Two years later, it appears Scrappy has picked up right where he left off, as he tells XXL, “I just did Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, and that episode will be out at the top of the year around the time my album [The Grustle] comes out. I also just did the new Tyler Perry movie. I just like the opportunities.”

The self-proclaimed Prince of the South recently announced his departure from Ludacris’ Disturbing the Peace imprint and has finally attached a release date to his second studio album, The Grustle, after a number of stalled attempts. The LP will be released via a joint venture with his own imprint, G-Sup, and Bonzi Records and is set to be distributed through Universal.

As to which of the two careers he enjoys the most, Scrappy says, although there might be more monetary incentive in acting, he might like making music better.

“The first thing is you get more money acting, but I don’t know if I like acting better than music,” he says. “I think want to be like Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson just do both of ‘em and get all the money.”—Nadine Graham
