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 labor in their neighborhood 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 — which features a blue-haired Erykah Badu — below.

Written and directed by Stephen Caple Jr and produced by Nas, the film's full soundtrack — which is curated by Nas — premiered on Spotify yesterday. It features 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," which is guaranteed to give you chills. Listen to the full soundtrack below.
