Kanye West, Nas, Pusha T and More Will Contribute to ‘The Land’ Soundtrack
Nas is calling on the big dogs for the soundtrack of The Land, a movie he's executive-producing. Kanye West, Pusha T, French Montana, Erykah Badu and Machine Gun Kelly will all be contributing to the film's original soundtrack.
Nas, Kanye and French were recently brought together on wax for French's 2016 mixtape, Wave Gods. Their track "Figure It Out" was easily one of the most talked about collabs on the tape and they just dropped the larger-than-life music video for the song.
It was first announced back in December that the Queens-born MC would be pulling the reigns as executive producer of The Land. Erykah Badu, MGK and Michael K. Williams all have roles in the coming-of-age story set in Cleveland, Ohio.
The flick follows Cisco (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.), the leader of his ragtag skateboarding crew (Moises Arias, Ezri Walker, Rafi Gavron, Melvin Gregg and more) just trying to navigate through a world of gangs, drugs and graduating high school. The Land is the debut feature film from Steven Caple Jr., is being released under IFC Films and judging from the first trailer, echoes vibes of last summer's hip-hop inspired Dope. Mass Appeal Records will fittingly drop the film's soundtrack on July 29, the same day the movie becomes available on video-on-demand services. Check out The Land's first trailer below.
