The LOX member isn’t the only one providing a glimpse behind the scenes. Cam’ron has been actively posting skits with Brandy, Eve and Naturi Naughton on Instagram throughout September, which have racked up millions of views.
In Queens, Brandy stars as Naomi a.k.a. Xplicit Lyrics. Her character’s description reads, “After being sure she would hit it big as a solo act, Naomi is reduced to playing music in dive bars. When the group does get back together she comes in contact with her one true love who was swept away by a rival bandmate. She also longs to build a relationship with her daughter.”
Eve plays the role of Brianna, who’s described as a “proud wife and mother of five. 20 years ago, Brianna was Professor Sex — one fourth of the Nasty Bitches — rapping about money, sex and her all-around glamorous lifestyle. Today, Brianna is a proud wife and mother of five in a stained sweatsuit who barely has a second to breathe.”
