This time, we have Shirin David who collaborates with McDonald’s, Snoop Dogg, who’s getting his own movie and Xatar’s Rheingold biopic, which is a huge success.

Lots to cover, so let’s get into it!

Shirin David x McDonald’s

In partnership with McDonald’s, Shirin David has released an alternative version of her hit “Lieben wir”. It focuses on the fast food giant’s well-known Monopoly sweepstakes. As the rapper hints in her Insta-story, there may be more coming our way from the partnership.

It’s McDonald’s first move with a German rap artist. The fast-food giant got together with Austrian rap star RAF Camora a couple of months ago for a celebrity meal consisting of two cheeseburgers, a box with six Chicken McNuggets, a Drink, large fries Pommes and two dips.

Xatar’s biopic is a hit

Xatar’s biopic “Rheingold” hit the cinemas on October 27 and is currently attracting the masses. The movie directed by Fatih Akin is a Gangster Drama that revolves around the life of the artist. He is portrayed by actor Emilio Sakraya.

The movie is currently generating huge hype. In the first weekend after its release, the film was seen by a total of around 170,000 viewers, giving Fatih Akin the best theatrical release of his career.

This just shows the cultural importance of Hiphop and stars like Xatar, who influence pop culture.

Snoop Dogg’s biopic
is coming

Just like Xatar, Snoop Dogg is getting a biopic. For this, he has launched his own production company Death Row Pictures and is producing the film together with Universal Pictures.

For the Doggfather’s film, he and Universal are relying on two very special directors: twins Allen and Albert Hughes. The Hughes brothers became known for their films “Menace II Society” and “Dead Presidents” in the 1990s. After their last film together 12 years ago, the zombie flick “The Book of Eli,” the brothers are reuniting behind the camera for the Snoop Dogg film. Wakanda Forever” co-writer Joe Robert Cole is responsible for the screenplay.
