A$AP Rocky might have strong opinions about the state of the Black community today, but one thing he knows for sure is that he thinks a Black man should play the next James Bond. And he believes that the role should go directly to him.
There was speculation for a while that Idris Elba would be the first Black Bond, but Elba squashed those rumors. In an interview with Esquire UK, the “F–kin’ Problems” rapper says that he has all of the qualifications to be the best Bond.
I’d get the job done and I’ll look better than any other Bond that has ever lived. All I need is a six-pack.
A little more goes into playing James Bond than good looks. First and lastly, he’s not British, so we’re not sure how that will work out. He’d have to very skilled at combat. On the flip side, Rocky does have the acting chops. He just made his acting debut in the movie Dope, and he did a pretty good job. But will it be enough for Bond, James Bond? Maybe not, but his skills might prepare him to be the next best something else – and we’ll look forward to it.
