A$AP Rocky Headed to the Big Screen in Dope Sundance Movie


Rick Famuyiwa's Dope premieres this week at Sundance and brings with it a slew of young, but familiar, faces. There will reportedly be some Tyga, some Odd Future, some Blake Anderson — but most important, there will be some A$AP Rocky. The rapper nabbed a part after he helped his girlfriend (Chanel Iman) prep for her own Dope audition (aww). In the movie he plays Dom, a supporting character who interacts with the film's self-proclaimed geeky protagonist, Malcolm, closely. The film tracks Malcolm — a hip-hop fan with a garage band (which Pharrell wrote four songs for) — as he struggles to survive in Inglewood, California. Rocky was lauded by Famuyiwa for his "natural charisma and ability," so here's the briefest of tastes to get you going. (Seriously, he's in like one shot so it's like, Where's A$AP Waldo?)
