The film Uncle Drew has been generating a lot of hype for itself with the release of several singles ranging from artists like French Montana, A$AP Rocky and Wiz Khalifa. The basketball comedy is directed by Charles Stone III and written by Jay Longino. Kyrie Irving takes on the role that he’s starred as in the past –– having been the character for a run of Pepsi Max commercials in 2012. The adventure of a streetball legend team is accompanied by some of the greatest voices in hip-hop and R&B.
The soundtrack has almost as many talented folks as the cast do, featuring artists from all ends of the genre spectrum- it creates a modern feel for an idea that’s tried and true. A rigmarole cast of athletes embarks on a journey to recruit Uncle Drew’s old basketball. The album is available now to stream on Spotify, and the movie Uncle Drew is in theatres now.
