Hype Williams Reveals Jay-Z Was Considered For “Belly”4 months ago by Amber Le in Uncategorized
During a panel at ComplexCon on November 4th, Hype Williams spilled some tea regarding the notorious film, Belly. It was the classic’s 20th anniversary and the director was celebrating with a few cast mates such as T-Boz and Nas. As Williams went down memory lane, he revealed that Jay-Z was considered for a role in movie.
Hov would have taken on the role as Tommy “Buns” Bundy, which DMX adapted starring alongside Nas. Williams explained his consideration.
“Back in time remember Hov didn’t pop yet. He wasn’t JAY Z, He was Jay Z, and if you know him, Hov is a real hustler. He comes from a real place. We were working with Def Jam and it was logical for it to be him.”
Even though the Jigga Man didn’t star in the movie, he did make an appearance on the Belly soundtrack, delivering fire features on “Pregame” and “Crew Love.”
