Rappers Soulja Boy and Nick Cannon are in talks to star in a new TV series - their own version of Will Smith's 1990s hit sitcom THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR.
Since shooting to fame with his eponymous debut single, hip-hop up-and-comer Soulja Boy has been "developing his brand" and he is keen to make a mark on the small and the big screen - including a collaboration with the new Mr. Mariah Carey.
Soulja Boy says, "I'm working with a lot of different artists and developing my brand. I'm working on a brand new Soulja Boy cartoon and I want to do a movie, and me and Nick Cannon are going back and forth with a TV show for Nickelodeon. We are trying to come up with the perfect show, kind of like The Fresh Prince of Bel Air."
