The Land will premiere at Sundance next month.

Nas has signed on as executive producer of upcoming indie drama The Land, which stars Erykah Badu and Bad Boy rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The Queens MC will also helm the film’s soundtrack.

The Land follows four teenage boys as they attempt to escape from the streets of Cleveland through careers in professional skateboarding. The group’s brotherhood is put to the test when they get caught in the web of a local drug queen-pin.

Steve Caple Jr. wrote and directed the film alongside Lizzie Friedman.

“[I’m a] huge fan of my man Steve Caple Jr. I think he can become the next great filmmaker. [I’m] also, very excited to be working with my former agent and friend Charles King on his first film with his new venture. All great energy around the film, which I believe will yield amazing results,” Nas said.

The Land will debut at Sundance Film Festival in January as part of the Next section. [via Variety]
