Afroman is making his first foray into the movie world - by releasing a spoof movie of the 1997 comedy Waiting To Exhale.
The rapper - who shot to fame with his 2001 chart hit Because I Got High - is confident the move will help boost his musical career.
Afroman is preparing to begin filming Waiting To Inhale - along with a new album sharing the same name.
He says, "I am supplying the key ingredients... It is hard to string two successful albums together these days for anybody much less somebody that had their one big hit six years ago.
"One thing I like about being Afroman is that nobody really cares... I'm not Paris Hilton or nobody. The benefits of being nobody."
