Drake is heading back to the screen, but it’s no Degrassi this time around. The rapper executive produced the upcoming drama Monsters and Men, which sheds light on police brutality and gun violence.
“I’m excited and honored to be a part of such an important film,” Drake wrote on Twitter one day ahead of the film’s theater release. “I can’t wait for everyone to experience it.”
