Watch Out Now! Azealia Banks Stars In New RZA Film ‘Love Beats Rhymes’ Featuring Common & Jill Scott
It looks like Azealia Banks is ready to be taken seriously now. The rapper who’s known for acting out and beefing with other artists is turning over a new leaf and is using all of her energy into something more important; her career.
The RZA-directed drama film centers around the life of Banks’ character Coco, a 25-year-old aspiring Hip-Hop artist who discovers the world of poetry and flourishes.
Banks shared her excitement on Instagram saying;
“This is my first film, my first leading role. I worked hard on this and am excited to see what doors open after this.”
Azealea may be a handful, but she’s one of many artists who has a unique style and sound. With knowing that, this is probably one of many reasons RZA felt so confident in working with Banks.
“I’m extremely excited and vigorously inspired to be working with Azealia Banks in my new directorial installment,” RZA said in a statement. “Producer Paul Hall and I have assembled a cool and eclectic cast to surround Azealia. Our story, which is set in today’s contemporary youth culture, will bring a new voice to cinema that needs to be heard.”
