Freddie Gibbs’ Movie Role Is A Familiar One For Him
Grammy-nominated rapper’s profile keeps getting bigger. After his album Alfredo earned critical acclaim and Best Rap Album consideration, the Indiana native is set to make his Hollywood movie debut this year.
Freddie Gibbs recently finished filming Down with the King, in which he portrays the main character. He plays a rapper named Money Merc who is looking to get out of the music industry and live a simpler life as a farmer.
The news of Gibbs’ acting debut, Complex can reveal, comes just as principal photography on the film has wrapped. The Alfredo rapper portrays Mercury Maxwell, a rapper who goes by the name Money Merc and is looking to leave hip-hop. As he’s sent by his manager to a house in the Berkshires to record his next album, Maxwell instead forms a bond with his farming neighbor and announces his retirement. After his focus shifts from rapping to farming, Maxwell’s manager is determined to get him back into the music scene. (Complex)
