Rap newcomer Blacc Zacc is getting cinematic on a Thursday. The hip-hop rookie has channeled his inner Netflix “Narcos” with the release of Carolina Narco.

Big Facts

Today, BZ came through with nearly 20 minutes of Hollywood magic. The video mixes loyalty, friendship and street life into a gripping short film.

Blac Zacc is keeping the momentum strong with the release of his short film Carolina Narco The Movie. Written and directed by FoolWiththeCamera, the enthralling 17-minute film captures the many elements of a gritty motion picture, from: dreams, jealousy, envy and new beginnings. The film follows Blacc Zacc and his crew as they work to maintain both their lifestyle and reign. As the scenes progress, loyalties are questioned as the harsh reality of “the game” begins to surface. The film ends with a promising “To Be Continued,” leaving viewers in anticipation of the saga’s next chapter. The film is executive produced by Gregory Hagar and features production by Chase Walker.

High-Key Details

Zacc has since issued a statement explaining the film’s motivation. Blacc noted the lack of musicians adding movies to their full-length album releases.

Noting the past prominence of short films within hip hop culture, Blacc Zacc was inspired to bring the trend back to the forefront, mentioning, “I wanted to create this film because nobody’s been dropping movies with their projects lately.”

Wait, There’s More

The new visual project follows the recent release of his debut album. The LP features guest spots from a slew of high-profile rap stars.

Known as “The Richest Rapper in the State,” the Columbia, SC native has now also successfully branded “Carolina Narco” through the release of his debut album, a title single and short film. The 11-track debut album featured appearances from Moneybagg Yo, Yo Gotti, Stunna 4 Vegas and DaBaby. Heavily influenced by the street life, each track rings of authenticity while also showcasing Blacc Zacc’s superior emcee skills. The latest single, “Make a Sale” featuring Moneybagg Yo gave fans a taste of what to expect on stage when Blacc Zacc was invited to join Moneybagg Yo’s recently-postponed Time Served Tour. The album features production by Young Kio, OG Parker, Romano and more.

Before You Go

In late September 2019, buzz developed about Blacc going major. Reports claimed he signed a contract with Interscope Records.

The deal comes in partnership with South Coast Music Group, which is also home to rising superstar DaBaby and Toosii. “Signing to Interscope was like a dream come true,” Zacc tells Billboard. “I stayed down a long time for this. Now I have the machine that can help me take over the world. Time to turn Interscope into the TRAP!” The deal comes in partnership with Arnold Taylor and Daud “King” Carter of South Coast Music Group. (Billboard)
