Method Man has joined the cast of VH1’s original Hip Hop drama.

VH1 has a movie in store that is based on Dan Charnas’ book The Big Payback: The History Of the Business Of Hip-Hop, The Breaks. 

Three friends, Mack Wilds, David Call, and Afton Williamson, are united by their love for Hip Hop as they work to make it into the music industry. The setting of the film is in the 1990s streets of New York City.

Method Man will play Wilds’ stern father who tries to redirect his focus away from Hip Hop.

Production is underway for a fall premiere.
