    Two generations of rap music are coming together. Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere of Flavor Unit Entertainment, along with Meek Mill and James Lindsay of Dream Chasers Films, are producing a film based on Mill's song "The Tony Story." A film based on a song? That, we cannot wait to see.

    'Tifah and Mill? Oh yes!

    Mill will star in the film, which is a fictional American crime drama that is influenced by Mill's experiences growing up in Philadelphia. The script is being written by Carlito Rodriquez and Cess Silvera (Shotta's) is set to direct.

    "I'm particularly excited about this project as Shakim and I are huge fans of Meek Mill and his work. It's a great partnership and we look forward to being involved in the telling of this story," says Queen Latifah.

    So do we, 'Tifah!

    Does this sound like a film you'd go see?
