Tony 2 isn’t the only thing on the way from King Louie. Lou recently hit Morehouse College to film his part for BET’s new scripted series The Yard, which centers around a newly elected president of a fictional Georgia A&M college (played by actress Anika Noni Rose) and her experiences with the school’s freshmen class. Yup, that’s right — King Louie is on his way to your television screens.

Not much is known about Louie’s role in the series at the moment, but I’m sure we’ll get to see Lou show off his acting chops when the two-hour pilot airs later this year. Montana of 300, DC Young Fly, Candace B. Harris were also spotted on set with Louie.

Check out a few pics via Louie’s Instagram below the jump and stay tuned for more info on when you’ll be able to catch The Yard.

Just when you thought the Chi-Raq movie saga was over, Spike Lee threw more gasoline on the almost dead fire. Spike’s Chi-Raq film was absolutely one of the biggest talking points of Chicago’s hip-hop scene in 2015, but after its December release, not much was said about Spike or the film. That is until last Wednesday night, when Spike hosted a screening and Q&A for Chi-Raq at Northwestern University.

During his Q&A discussion, the filmmaker called Chance The Rapper a “fraud,” and even joked about King Louie getting shot after releasing his scathing “Fuck Spike Lee” video late last year (read the full rundown here.) Of Louie’s shooting, Spike told the crowd “I didn’t do it!”

Yikes. Louie, obviously wasn’t amused at Spike’s mocking of his near-death experience, where Louie survived a head-shot in late-December. King Louie recently took to Twitter to air out Spike, and tossed out a few accusations of his own. You can read a rundown of his rant below.
