If we told you Pharrell Williams, Vince Staples and A$AP Rocky were collaborating, you would probably assume it’s a new song or album. Wrong. “DOPE” isn’t just a word to describe these three artists but it’s also a new movie that the rappers all play a big part in. Executively produced by Pharrell, “DOPE” comes out June 19th on Open Road Films and stars Shameik Moore as Malcolm, with some supporting performances by Rocky and Vince.
A Sundance Film Festival favorite, DOPE centers around a high school kid who is juggling college applications, academic interviews, and college prep tests when getting involved with the wrong person (played by A$AP) gets him into a wild drug-dealing adventure. Beyond its rappers, this cast is stacked all around, and you definitely won’t want to miss out next month.
