Controversial vibrant rapper, Azealia Banks, who just premiered her first album  "Broke With Expensive Taste" last year, is now dipping her hands into film.  Awesomely, Banks has snagged a lead role in a feature Lionsgate and Codeblack Film(s) directed by the legendary RZA from Wu-Tang Clan.  "CoCo", in which she will play the title character, is a Brooklyn-set drama about an aspiring rapper in her twenties who wants a career in hip-hop but is stuck between fulfilling her parents wishes to finish college.  According to Deadline, the film has a bit of an 8 Mile edge to it.
