Summer 16 skate movie The Land is about a quartet of budding pros who turn to drug dealing in an attempt to escape the impoverished streets of Cleveland, Ohio. The talented up-and-comers playing buddies Cisco, Boobie, Junior, and Patty Cake are not yet household names, but the film is actually quite the all-star effort. Nas is producing, while Erykah Badu, Machine Gun Kelly, and Michael K. Williams have all joined the youth-driven cast of actors. Then there's the soundtrack, which is probably worth pre-ordering on iTunes already. Jeremih, Pusha T, Nosaj Thing, Erykah Badu, Nas, French Montana, and Kanye West have all contributed tracks to what looks like a low-key success story for debut film director Steven Caple Jr. 

The Land (and its soundtrack) is out nationwide on July 29.
