'Dope' Trailer: ASAP Rocky Shares Extended Red Band Version [WATCH]
While A$AP Rocky preps the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP (or A.L.L.A.), he has taken time out to promote one of his other projects, the film Dope. The third and longest trailer to surface for the film, it gives a deeper look into the plot and the characters involved, such as their scheme to sell an unwanted stash of MDMA to the white people at Coachella.
IMBD describes the Forest Whitaker-narrated film as: "A coming of age comedy/drama for the post hip-hop generation. Malcolm is a geek, carefully surviving life in The Bottoms, a tough neighborhood in Inglewood, CA filled gangsters and drugs dealers, while juggling his senior year of college applications, interviews and the SAT. His dream is to attend Harvard. A chance invitation to a big underground party leads Malcolm and his friends into a, only in Los Angeles, gritty adventure filed with offbeat characters and bad choices. If Malcolm can persevere, he'll go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself."
After premiering at Sundance, the film secured a distribution deal for $7 million. In addition to Rocky (Dom), the film also stars Zoë Kravitz (Nakia), Shameik Moore (Malcom), Tyga (De'Andre), Chanel Iman (Lily), Blake Anderson (Will), Kiersey Clemons (Diggy), Keith Stanfield (Bug) and more.
Dope is due out in theaters June 19.
Speaking about his debut acting role in the film during his Red Bull Music Academy interview in New York earlier this month, Rocky called the experience "pretty ill."
"I was sober; I was corny. It started out as a challenge because I wanted to start off with a small role and work my way up, and I didn't expect for it to do all that Sundance stuff and Cannes, but it did," he said. "I think god is just good man that's all I can really say."
