Meek Mill to Star in New Movie ’12 O’Clock Boys’
Meek Mill is stepping into the acting world. The Philadelphia rapper has landed a role in the upcoming film, 12 O'Clock Boys.
The movie is a feature adaptation to Lotfy Nathan’s 2013 documentary of the same name. Meek will be joined on the cast by Teyonah Parris, Jahi Winston and Will Catlett, reports Deadline. Directed by Angel Manuel Soto, the film will revolve around a character named Mouse who longs to be part of a rough and tumble crew of Baltimore bike riders named The Midnight Clique.
Meek scored the role of the Midnight Clique's leader, who the main character looks to as an OG in the game. The film will be released through Overbrook and Sony Entertainment and its producers included Jada Pinkett Smith, Caleeb Pinkett, Marc Bienstock and Clarence Hammond. It is currently in production.
These are big times for the Dreamchasers head honcho, who recently landed the cover of XXL's fall 2018 issue. For the cover story, Meek pens an open letter his younger self, warning young Robert about the ills he would soon face. "My question to you, Meek, is: Are you willing to travel those rocky roads towards your throne? Most importantly: Are you sure you want this responsibility?" Meek writes. "Like our old heads used to say, 'Heavy is the head that wears the crown.' It’s free to dream but nothing is more expensive than achieving them."
The fall issue of XXL is on newsstands everywhere Oct. 16. Meek also is working on a new album that will possibly feature a collab with Cardi B.
