Published Jan 14, 2016G-Eazy has carved out a rap career by putting out records like his recent When It's Dark Out, but he'll next be seen flexing his acting chops in a short film called Tunnel Vision.
Marking Gerald "G-Eazy" Gillum's acting debut, the crime drama finds the rapper portraying hip-hop promoter Antonio Salvatore Servidio (a.k.a. Johnny Russo). A press release explains that Tunnel Vision details the life of Servidio, from meeting Tupac Shakur and Mac Dre in the early '90s, to selling firearms illegally, to serving time in prison.
It also goes on to include how the onetime show promoter rebuilt his life as a successful real estate broker before "the feds seized over 6 million in assets," owing to a ponzi scheme allegedly set up by Servidio's lawyer.
Executive produced by Servidio, the film is "based off of true reports from the FBI, ATF, DEA, and the Department of Justice." He also co-wrote the screenplay with the film's director, Sarah B. Downey.
Though a release date has yet to be confirmed, you'll find a trailer for Tunnel Vision, which finds G-Eazy making deals, toting guns and being offered a good scotch, down below.
