Azealia Banks has her hands full working on her next album and now making her acting debut in Coco. The film, directed by RZA, will follow "Coco," an aspiring rapper living in Brooklyn whose parents want her to finish college. Think Lauryn Hill’s Rita Watson in Sister Act 2, but grittier. 

Banks will star alongside Common, who will also be appearing in Spike Lee’s new joint, Orange Is The New Black’s Lorraine Toussaint, Jill Scott, Lucien Laviscount, and Hana Mae Lee.
