The Land is a new feature film following the adventures of a group of young skaters as they strive to escape a monotonous and predictable life labour in their neighbourhood in Cleveland. Events take a nail-biting turn when an opportunity to make money, pits the four against the city's ruthless drug dealers. Watch the trailer, featuring a blue-haired Erykah Badu, below.

Written and directed by Stephen Caple Jr and produced by Nas, the film's full soundtrack, also curated by Nas, premiered on Spotify yesterday featuring tracks by an impressive line up including Kanye West, Erykah Badu, French Montana, Pusha T, Jeremih and Nosaj Thing. It also includes a haunting collaboration between Erykah Badu and Nas called This Bitter Land, guaranteed to give you chills. Listen to the whole thing below.
