Congratulations are in order for Swizz Beatz and Nichole Levy’s son Nasir Dean, as he’s been named a leading man in Hollywood.
According to TMZ, the 20-year-old thespian (also known as Note Marcarto on the music tip) landed the starring role in the forthcoming film Charge It The Game.
The movie is said to be a “coming-of-age” piece depicting four best friends embracing life’s challenges with Nasir portraying a character named “Preach.”
It’s said his acting chops displayed in Common and Swizzy’s 2019 “Hercules” music video opened the floodgates for filmmakers and producers to pull him away from his music career. The thriving artist released his 2020 BeachBum Limbo through Epic Records — and has another musical project titled Mr. Cardinal — in the chamber.
Despite his famous father’s connections and resources, it appears hard work and dedication got the young Nasir his current situation. He recently auditioned for Zendaya and Drake’s award-winning HBO Series Euphoria — but walked away empty-handed and undeterred.
Charge It To The Game will reportedly start filming in Atlanta later in June.
