Hip-Hop fans already know Houston's own Devin The Dude as one of the most talented rappers and crooners around. This Tuesday, he'll be showing audiences everywhere that his talents extend far beyond the vocal booth, as he stars in the new film Highway. Also starring Lil Duval (often seen on the MTV2 shows Guy Code and Hip Hop Squares), Highway is the hilarious story of two weed-loving friends in search of a mythical highway leading to "marijuana nirvana." "It was great working with Devin in the film," explains director Coke Daniels. "He's one of the collest most humble people I've ever met in my life, and I think he's definitely got a future in acting." Highway will be released through Grindstone / Lionsgate.
In addition, this Tuesday will also mark the release of the film's soundtrack, featuring Devin The Dude classics as well as previously unreleased material from Devin and his crew. The soundtrack also features appearances from the likes of 2 Chainz, UGK, Smoke DZA, Tha Dogg Pound, Slim Thug, Curren$y, David Banner, Coughee Brothaz, Asher Roth, and more. "I think Devin's fans will love the soundtrack," says Daniels. "It's more of what Devin has given them consistently over the course of his career: good-time, weed-smoking hip hop."
