Migos rapper Quavo is no stranger to the big screen and for his latest movie role, he’ll star in a new action thriller, called Takeover, about Atlanta’s fascinating car culture.
According to Deadline, Quavo will play main character Guy Miller, a recent prison parolee who’s working to rehabilitate his life when he gets wrapped back up into the city’s dangerous “takeover” car scene.
“I’m really excited for this opportunity, especially shooting in my hometown of Atlanta,” Quavo said, as reported by Deadline. “This film is an ideal opportunity to further delve into my craft, and I can’t wait to see how the action plays out in this animated environment.”
Speaking of “action,” the “MotorSport” rapper announced on Wednesday that his annual seven-on-seven celebrity football game will take place in Atlanta this Saturday, April 30. The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at the historic Pullman Yards, with the first of two celebrity games scheduled for 7:00 p.m. and the last set to start at 9:00 p.m.
In a promo video shared to his Instagram, Quavo said, “It’s About That Time.. Huncho Day!” He’ll play alongside fellow musicians, entertainers and professional athletes, with all proceeds of the game collected in support of the Quavo Cares Foundation.
So far, former NFL players Johnny Manziel and Terrell Owens are expected to take the field, with more stars to be announced.
Tickets for Quavo’s “Huncho Day,” are available for purchase now.
