Nas is serving as executive producer to a new film by Erykah Badu, but that's not all. He's also producing the soundtrack to the film, which is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, next month.

The film is titled The Land, and is written by Steve Caple Jr. and Lizzie Friedman.

“[I’m a] huge fan of my man Steve Caple Jr. I think he can become the next great filmmaker," Nas tells Variety. [I’m] also, very excited to be working with my former agent and friend Charles King on his first film with his new venture. All great energy around the film, which I believe will yield amazing results."

The Land focuses on four teenage boys in Cleveland, Ohio whose brotherhood is put to the test while in pursuit of a better life.

Erykah Badu is set to star alongside Michael K. Williams, Kim Coates, and Machine Gun Kelly among others.
