Watch the First Trailer for the Movie ‘Dope’ with A$AP Rocky
The first trailer for the movie Dope has hit the web. The film first premiered at the 2015 Sundance Festival and later it was sold to Open Road Films and Sony.
The Ricky Famuyiwa-directed film follows a young kid (Shameik Moore) and his crew just trying to make it in The Bottoms, one of Inglewood, Calif.’s toughest neighborhoods. The movie is a modern-day coming of age story with an old school touch. The trailer doesn't give away much, but it's pretty funky. Dope's cast features a number of young stars, including A$AP Rocky, who landed the role after helping his then-girlfriend Chanel Iman practice her part. Other actors include Toni Revolori, Zoe Kravitz, Kiersey Clemons and Blake Anderson. Dope hits theaters June 19. Watch the trailer above.
The Harlemite announced the title for his second major label album, At.Long.Last.A$AP. Rocky explained how he reverse engineered the title: “Look at it: At.Long.Last.A$AP. A-L-L-A. Like slang for ‘Allah.’ It’s the return of the god MC.” Rocky recently opened up about Yams’ passing and the night he died. Rocky also announced that next album will feature Lykke Li, FKA Twigs and others offered guest contributions; the LP is co-executive produced by Juicy J and the late A$AP Yams.
It was announced today (March 25) that Rocky will perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer.
