Although Kid Cudi has expressed quite a bit of negativity about his music career and record label lately, it appears his acting career is headed in the right direction.

According to Hollywood Reporter Scott Mescudi has joined the cast of DreamWorks‘ movie Need for Speed based on the popular video game. This isn’t the first time the “Day ‘N’ Nite” rapper has tried his hand at acting. He recently played Domingo Brown in the unfortunately slept on and cancelled show How To Make It In America.

DreamWorks plans on basing the film around 1970s car culture. It is set to feature Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul, who plays a street racer that joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to avenge the death of his friend. Cudi plays a member of Paul’s crew.

Need for Speed is expected to his theaters on Valentine’s Day of next year.
