Azealia Banks will make her acting debut in the RZA-directed flick, Love Beats Rhymes. The Harlem rapper recently announced the release date for the film on her Instagram page.

According to Banks, the movie will arrive in select theaters on Dec. 1 and hit DVD on Jan. 1. The film also stars Common, Method Man, Jill Scott, Lucien Laviscount and Hana Mae Lee.

In the movie, Banks plays an aspiring rapper who discovers the world slam poetry. The 26-year-old artist also posted the trailer as well. “This is my first film, my first leading role. I worked hard on this and am excited to see what doors open after this,” she writes on Instagram.

Banks has had an up and down year, so far. Last month, she got into social media beef with Cardi B after she accused her using a ghostwriter for “Bodak Yellow.” Recently, the “212” rapper squashed beefs with her former rap foes Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea.
