J. Cole Ventures Into Movie Production With “Out Of Omaha”
Popular rapper J. Cole has dipped his feet into movie production as he is said to be the executive producer of a new film that is scheduled to premiere at the DOC NYC film festival next week.
The announcement was made via Dreamville’s verified Twitter account.
Bear in mind that Dreamville Records is an American record label founded by the hip hop artist and his manager Ibrahim Hamad.
The label is currently distributed through Interscope Records, a division of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, a unit of Universal Music Group.
The label has signed Ari Lennox, Bas, Cozz, Omen, Lute, J.I.D, EarthGang, and Cole himself. It also houses producers Elite, Ron Gilmore, and Cedric Brown.
HotNewHipHop also reports that the film “Out Of Omaha” is actually the brainchild of director Clay Tweel, under the supervision of J. Cole in the executive producer role.
The documentary tells the story of identical twins Darcell and Darrell Trotter, facing similar yet contrasting circumstancing in the same Omaha town where a history of injustice persists from generation to generation.
Out of Omaha’s World premiere is on November 10 in New York.
