Young Thug is set to make his big screen debut in the upcoming film Throw It Back, led by Feigco Entertainment and Tiffany Haddish‘s She Ready Productions.

Directed by Shadae Lamar Smith and co-written with Rochée Jeffrey, the musical drama-comedy follows high school senior Wytrell, portrayed by Us star Shahadi Wright Joseph, who “has never stood out from the crowd.” A controversial Miami rapper, portrayed by Thugger, then decides to include the celebrated dance team from Wytrell’s high school in his music video, so Wytrell must fight for a spot on the team as her “final chance to be in the spotlight.”

In addition to co-starring in the film, Young Thug will also executive produce the film and supervise the soundtrack, the latter of which will feature Southern hip-hop and HBCU collegiate band rhythms.

Stay tuned for an official trailer and release date.
