Offset said he “can’t wait” to start filming his role in the upcoming Pete Davidson sneaker movie American Sole. The Migos rapper’s big screen debut will star alongside O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Camila Mendes in the film written and directed by Ian Edelman (How To Make It In America, Puerto Ricans in Paris), according to Deadline.

The rapper tweeted his excitement over the role on Friday morning (Nov. 6) after news broke that he will play a computer engineer in the film focusing on two twentysomethings (Davidson, Jackson Jr.) who cook up a scheme to resell sneakers to pay off their enormous college debt. Offset will also reportedly work with Edelman and STX Music exec Jason Markey to curate and executive produce the movie’s soundtrack album, which is slated to contain at least one new song.

“This is my first feature film as an actor. After doing NCIS, I knew I wanted to do more acting,” Offest said, referring to his acting debut earlier this year on NCIS: Los Angeles. “Landing this role in American Sole is dope. Not only do I get to star in the movie, but I get to bring my skills to the table as the curator and executive producer for the soundtrack. I’m bringing my world to the big screen. I hope the world is ready.”

The movie is being produced by comedian Kevin Hart through his HartBeat company, along with NBA All-Star and first-time movie producer Chris Paul. “To have Offset joining our team is a dream scenario,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group. “Offset’s character is important to the storyline and we couldn’t be more excited to have him working with us behind the scenes as he works with Ian and the team at STX to help us define the sound of this film. We could not be in better hands.”
