Writing a movie is “easy”, says the rapper.
t has penned his first script, an underdog gangster story inspired by his personal life and hip hop’s favourite Netflix series, Narcos.
Ross’ script, titled GABOS – which stands for ‘Game Ain’t Based on Sympathy’ – was originally intended to be a single movie, but it sounds like Ross got a bit carried away.
“I feel it’s too big to be one film,” he told Rolling Stone. “I feel we should film it, break it down and make it a series, if we can.” Hinting at the film’s plot, he said: “The only thing better than a double-cross is a triple-cross.”
He also described the writing process as “easy”, having grown up watching Miami Vice. “Writing a film, you can bring it all to life, whether it’s for yourself or another character in a film,” he says.
There’s no sign that the screenplay will actually get filmed any time soon, but as someone who’s released three albums in two years, he can definitely get shit done.
