Directed by Randall Emmett (Midnight at Switchgrass), Quavo will play Coyote, “a ruthless and heartless drug lord.” The film is described as No Country for Old Men and is written by Adam Taylor Barker. The story centers on a recovering opioid addict seeking revenge on the dealer (coyote) responsible for selling the drugs that led to his lover’s death.

“I honestly think this movie is going to be one of the greatest of the time,” says Quavo. “The experience was amazing for me as Robert De Niro and Jack Huston were so down to earth and I felt like family. I’ll see me do some stunts and a lot of what you hear from me in my raps! This is one of my biggest debuts I’ve ever had and I’m so proud of what we did and to be working with Randall who is such a great guy – I can’t wait to see more films with him do. “

“Quavo is a superstar and a real actor,” added Emmett. “It’s very exciting to see him bring the Coyote character to life and I think he’ll have a film career as big as his music.”
