Would you be here for this? Legendary rapper, and icon, Big Boi has been casted to play another legend- Berry Gordy in an upcoming film.
The film will be an biopic, and will air on television network TV One, later this year. Bobby DeBarge was the lead singer in a group called Switch. The group was signed to Berry Gordy’s Motown records.
Big Boi took to his Instagram to let his fans know he, “Just finished playing Berry Gordy in the ‘DeBarge’ movie.”
According to a press release from TV One, “The Bobby Debarge Story continues TV One’s tradition of telling the story of unsung music heroes. While our audience knows Bobby’s group, Switch, and his musically-gifted family, DeBarge, they may not know Bobby DeBarge’s contribution to creating the sound that changed the music landscape for decades to come. A falsetto master, Bobby DeBarge was a musical genius who battled demons of his own for many years. The Bobby Debarge Story is the quintessential story of sex, drugs, and rock and roll.”
