Migos rapper Offset is set to make his feature film debut in the upcoming film American Sole.
According to Deadline Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, will not only play a computer engineer in the drama and but also executive produce American Sole: The Soundtrack Album.
The film which also stars O'Shea Jackson, Pete Davidson and Camilla Mendes centres on two twenty-somethings who launch a start-up after college, reselling sneakers. They encounter problems which force them to team up with a shady character.
About being cast in the film, the 28-year-old said: "This is my first feature film as an actor. After doing NCIS, I knew I wanted to do more acting. Landing this role in American Sole is dope.
"Not only do I get to star in the movie, but I get to bring my skills to the table as the curator and executive producer for the soundtrack. I'm bringing my world to the big screen. I hope the world is ready," he added.
