Read excerpts from his interview below:
One his character’s development: Dre is hungry. You know he came from nothing, he’s always worked under someone, and now he wants that power and all the prestige that comes along with it to himself…the way he goes about it though is questionable, but you can just see over the years how he gone from hitman and lieutenant to the main man…He’s also learned a lot from seeing them [Ghost, Tommy, and Kanan] in action; so they kind of all made him.
On his music: I’m never going to be done with music and I have some new stuff on the way that will be coming out soon, possibly later this year…I’m really loving that people respect and appreciate my acting and musical talents. I have some really die hard fans out there.
On joining the cast of Black Panther: It’s definitely true that I have been wanting to play a comic book character for a while and with me being Nigerian, ‘Black Panther’ would be right up my alley. ..I’m a big Marvel fan! I’ve never heard of him [Brother Voodoo] but yo I would definitely be down to playing him.
