A$AP Rocky can probably be recognized for his fashion more than his music, but now he takes on a new challenge, appearing in his first film.
Dope centers around geeky main character Malcolm (Shameik Moore) living through the struggles of a young black boy in Inglewood, California. Looking for a way out, trying to further his education, the opportunity for Malcolm to be that cool kid society pressures him to be, presents itself. From here, things unfold and before you know it; we are in an adventure folowing the adolescent teen and a few of his friends. An all-star cast including A$AP Rocky as Dom, Zoe Kravitz as Nakia, and Kimberley Elise as Malcolm’s mum. Academy award winner Forest Whitaker lends his voice as narrator, while Pharell provides the soundtrack. The thirty-second trailer is full of pop rock, and fast paced scenes, but looks like a good watch. Let’s see if Rocky is as good at acting as he is dressing.
