Chance the Rapper is taking his talents to the big screen to star in his first feature film, titled Slice. The upcoming movie, which is still without a concrete release date, unveiled its first trailer Tuesday morning (Aug. 21).
Chano takes on the role of a delivery boy in the horror alongside Atlanta‘s Zazie Beetz, Hannibal Burress, Stranger Things‘ Joe Keery, Rae Gray, and more.
The film’s premise is built around the fact that a haunted pizza shop serves as “the gateway to hell.” The Chicago native, who goes by Dax Lycander in the movie, looks to double as a werewolf and seems to be getting pinned as a serial killer with a number of unsolved murders popping up around town.
In addition to his acting endeavor, Chance the Rapper continues to use his massive social media platform to speak up when he deems it necessary. After witnessing the harsh backlash Nicki Minaj received for her Twitter tirade taking aim at Travis Scott and those in the industry conspiring against her to lose, the 25-year-old came to the Queens rapper’s defense. “I can’t imagine what it’d be like to literally not be able to show yo frustrations with actual inequities and subjugation. Without being called bitter or angry or a liar or crazy,” Chance tweeted Monday evening (Aug. 20). “[Motherfuckers] a literally tell a [Black Woman] ‘I feel u but u not goin about it the right way.’… what?”
