The rapper has starred in several films including "ATL" and "Who's Your Caddy," and he's looking to put more attention on television and film projects. The Atlanta-based rapper has already landed a recurring role on "The Quad" and is in the process of filming his part for "Super Fly," a remake of the 1970s cult classic.
