Young Thug has been cast opposite one of the movie biz’s rising stars in Tiffany Haddish’s new film, “Throw It Back.”
Shahadi Wright-Joseph is blossoming into Hollywood’s “It” girl.
The teen possesses everything from breathtaking looks, unbelievable talent, and a resume that is simply nothing to sneeze at, and with this pairing with the chart-topping YSL recording artist, it seems that she is in a position to open doors to her Tinseltown world.
According to Deadline, Thugger will not only co-star alongside the pint-size Brooklyn bomber in what will be his acting debut but will serve as executive producer and supervise the soundtrack.
Sure to be a cult classic, the film will make you think of Jamie Fox’s Annie, a lot of Nick Cannon’s “Drumline*, and a dash of Chris Stokes’ *You Got Served.”
Joseph plays Wytrell, a high school senior who aims to get “discovered” by a controversial Miami rapper.
Said superstar, played by Young Thug, has a music video and kids are competing to be in the top spot in the visual. Wytrell battles for a spot and the drama basically rolls from there.
The film is described as follows: “a dance-filled musical dramedy set to a soundtrack of Southern hip hop and HBCU collegiate band rhythms.”
