As previously reported, Nas is the executive producer of and curating the soundtrack for The Land, an upcoming film about Cleveland that stars Machine Gun Kelly, Erykah Badu and more. After the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend, the legendary Queens rapper sat down with Revolt TV to share some more details on what to expect. “Lots of good talent in the film,” Nas said. “It’s based in Cleveland, in the hoods of Cleveland. … The timing worked out impeccably. So it’s just like living the life right now.” The Land will focus on four skateboarders from the 216, and their trials and tribulations as they moonlight as drug dealers.

(Video) MGK Talks Macklemore & Race In Rap At LAX

Machine Gun Kelly was in LAX yesterday to catch a flight to the Sundance Film Festival (where he performed last night alongside Erykah Badu and Nas to celebrate the premiere of their new film, The Land.) While walking through the airport, the “Till I Die” rapper was followed by a photog who apparently was a huge fan – but made the mistake of calling him “one of the top 5 white rappers.” “I mean I’m not just a great WHITE rapper,” an annoyed MGK responded. “I’m a great rapper, motherf*cker.” As the photog tried to backpedal, MGK elaborated on the issue of race in rap, and took a slight dig at Macklemore’s new song when he said, “Race is not an issue. Race is an issue for people like Macklemore and sh*t.” Welp! Check out the full clip below.
