In late 2015, it was announced that a new skate film starring Erykah Badu and produced by Nas titled The Land was in the works. Moreover, the soundtrack would feature contributions from Kanye West, Pusha T, Jeremih and more. Today, the first trailer for the movie has hit the web and it looks like it will deliver. Peep a brief summation from the filmmakers and watch the clip below.
“Teenage buddies Cisco, Boobie, Junior, and Patty Cake skateboard the streets of Cleveland, Ohio, dreaming of getting discovered by a sponsor and skating their way out of poverty. That is until the boys discover a bag full of pills in the back of a stolen car. Cisco’s entrepreneurial instincts take over, and in a flash their lives get better. But no one counted on having to come face to face with the cold, calculating, and notorious drug queenpin, “Momma,” who runs the toughest gang in town…More than a crime drama, THE LAND is a beautifully rendered story about friendship, values, and what it means for disaffected youth to come of age on the streets of Cleveland.”
