In a movie about Kanye West‘s life, who would play the lead role? Well, Ye already has an idea.
The “Praise God” rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday (Oct. 5) to share a black screen with the words, “Who should play me in a Ye movie?
On Wednesday (Oct 5), the fashion designer took a break from the controversy surrounding his “White Lives Matter” shirts and headed to Instagram to ask his followers who should play him in a hypothetical film.
West gave his own opinion on the matter and insisted Foxx, 54, is his favorite to depict the life and times of Ye. “My pick is Jamie Foxx,” Ye expressed, already having his mind made up on the question. “One of the greatest genius.”
The College Dropout‘s Instagram post arrived just a day after “one of the greatest” geniuses uploaded a post regarding Black Lives Matter. Jamie typed a heartfelt tribute to the movement amid Kanye’s “White Lives Matter” debate across the internet in the aforementioned post.
In 2005, Foxx was nominated for best supporting actor at the Academy Awards for his role in Collateral. While he didn’t take home that award, he walked away with one even better. He won best actor that year for portraying Ray Charles in Ray. He also won a Golden Globe award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his Ray role as well.
