“He’s bad, but I’m dangerous,” wrote The Rock on Instagram July 5.
“Welcome my brotha @idriselba with tattooed and open arms…For years we’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to work together and this film is the perfect one. Every great hero needs an even greater villain. Cue the music… I’ve been waiting… let’s dance.”
The film will also star Jason Statham.
A Renaissance Man
Elba is out here living his best life in some pretty eclectic acting roles and surprising projects.
Aside from starring roles in television and film, he’s a director, a DJ, and now, he’s running a record label.
The gorgeous actor who is gearing up to marry Sabrina Dowhre just launched his own record label, 7Wallace Music.
Elba announced the big news on Tuesday and revealed he already signed his first artist, James BKS. The French producer from Cameroon has already worked with heavy hitters like Talib Kweli and Diddy among others. He has also made music for commercials for huge design houses like Yves Saint-Laurent, Armani, and Prada and scored several French films including La Taularde and Le Gang Des Antillais. His father is the legendary Afro-jazz saxophonist Manu Dibango.
“James is a rare find,” Elba told Billboard. “His hip-hop sensibilities transfer to the other music he makes, he’s a nice person to work with and is gonna be a strong artist in the future. It’s a huge move for 7Wallace, a small indie label.”
James’ single “Kwlele” is slated to drop on July 13 and features, Dibango and Allan Kingdom.
