YG will soon be using his acting chops again.

The Los Angles rapper nabbed a role in the new upcoming independent film, Tuscaloosa, reports Deadline.

YG will portray the character of Antoine in the coming-of-age drama. Antoine is a "black power activist and Vietnam war veteran who tangles with the Tuscaloosa police in 1972."

Tuscaloosa chronicles the life of a white teenager named Billy Mitchell who deals with the ins and outs of being a "disaffected son of Tuscaloosa's white middle class who must choose a path forward as ties of family, class, race and love make competing claims on his loyalty."

YG, 29, has made a few cameos in movies, including 2018's White Boy Rick with Matthew McConaughey.In Tuscaloosa, YG will be acting alongside Stranger Things actress Natalia Dyer, Devon Bostick, Tate Donovan, and Marchant Davis.

The film is based on W. Glasgow Phillips' book of the same title.
