Says XXL:

Baatin has had such a great impact on Jack’s life that he used the fallen MC as inspiration for the main character—which will be voiced by Lupe Fiasco—in his animated film scheduled to come out next year. “You never knew I was making a movie for you,” Jack rhymes. “When they thought you were crazy I still adored you/It ain’t over, you ain’t done yet/You the only real superhero that I ever met/So I’m getting a tattoo to remind me daily/That if love’s insane they can call me crazy… I swear to God you were the robot with the heart of gold/Don’t worry Baatin this is just the first episode/And it was fun while it lasted/So I hope you back with Dilla making something fantastic.”
