Nas has been tapped as the executive producer of Steve Caple Jr.‘s forthcoming film The Land, as well as the curator to its soundtrack.

Per the press release, The Land “follows four teenage boys who pursue professional skateboarding as a way escaping the streets of Cleveland, only to get caught up with a local drug queen-pin.” Its stars include Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly, as well as Erykah Badu, Michael K. Williams, Kim Coates and more.
