In 2015, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA announced he was directing a film starring Azealia Banks and Common. The full-length feature musical drama, called Love Beats Rhymes and originally titled Coco, will be released digitally and in select theatres December 1.
The film tells the story of a female rapper who becomes interested in slam poetry after signing up for a college poetry course. Jill Scott, Lucien Laviscount, and Hana Mae Lee are among other members of the cast. Watch the trailer below.
