Queen Erykah Badu is taking 2016 by force. She’s set to star in the upcoming feature length film “THE LAND” due this summer directed by Steven Caple Jr.
This exciting, gritty new film coming July 29th to theaters features an ensemble cast including Badu newcomer Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Machine Gun Kelly, Michael Kenneth Williams and Linda Emond, who is bone chilling as “Momma.” The film also features brand new music from Badu, Nas, Machine Gun Kelly, Kanye West and French Montana.
More than a crime drama, THE LAND is a story about friendship, values and what it means for disaffected youth to come of age on the streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Catch the official trailer below.
In addition, she’s just blessed us this afternoon with a “slow jam” via her SoundCloud. Press play shortly after reading this to let the songstress of soul do her thing once again with a remix of PARTYNEXTDOOR’s track she calls “Come & See Badu.”
