Contrary to a rumor making the rounds this morning, rapper Nas is not starring in this summer’s Ghostbusters reboot. The bogus rumor began circulating after a blog made the claim by posting an image of the rapper wearing a Ghostbusters uniform without researching the image.

As it turns out, Nas is actually partnering with Sony who is distributing the film to release a collaborative Ghostbusters clothing line through his HSTRY brand. “Ghostbusters is every fun thing you can think of when it comes to the imagination, when you think about the supernatural, paranormal activity,” Nasir shared in an interview with Hypebeast. “What kid doesn’t get inspired or intrigued by ghost stories?”

Nas says he’s always looking for other ways to generate revenue outside of music since the business has changed so much. “The music industry is going through a drastic change on every level [and] every aspect of it where there are new interesting ways to do things … Remember Sean Jean was a T-shirt and a baseball cap in my man’s Puffy’s office, and he was like wondering [if it] would work and look at it now. I like getting involved with things in the beginning stages and getting a vision for it and then going for it.”

The Ghostbusters reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy hits theaters on July 15.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
