Soulja Boy Tell ’Em has had a pretty successful music career so far, delivering smashes for the teen set with “Crank Dat” and his lastest, “Prett Boy Swag.”
Now, though, SB is set transition to the movie business.
He and Nick Cannon have a project in the works.
“Me and Nick Cannon have been talking back and forth for, like, the last year about a movie idea,” SB told MTV News. “I did a movie with him earlier this year with Justin Bieber [’School Gyrls’], and it went straight to Nickelodeon. It was a good movie, but it was mostly for kids. We were talking back and forth, and he wants me to star in a movie that he wrote when he was, like, 17.”
According to the “Pretty Boy Swag” rapper, production will begin in November.
He was hush on additional details, but the 20-year-old star said he hopes his first foray into Hollywood isn’t a one-stop trip: He eventually wants to shoot a biopic.
“I want people to know my story,” he said. “Because a lot of people know Soulja Boy and know my songs, but a lot of people don’t know where I’m from or where I came from, how I did it.
