Freddie Gibbs is starring in the forthcoming movie Down With the King, Complex reports. Written and directed by Diego Ongaro the film is about a famous rapper named Mercury Maxwell (played by Gibbs) who abruptly retires to focus on a newfound appreciation of farming, while his manager tries to lure him back to the rap game. Gibbs also wrote and performed original music for the film, according to Complex.
This will be Freddie’s acting debut.
Down With The King will be making its world premiere later at this year’s Cannes Film Festival as part of the ACID (Association For Independent Cinema and its Distribution) section.
