Def Jux rapper Cage is to have a film made about his life.
The former Smut Peddler, who signed to El-P’s label and released Hell’s Winter, will reportedly be portrayed by Shia LaBeouf. The actor said spoke of his take on the role, looking at Robert De Niro’s style:
“It’s kind of like how no matter what film De Niro was making, he was always ready to pull Raging Bull out of his back pocket. Cage is my Jake LaMotta.”
Meanwhile, Cage is currently at work on a new album, Depart From Me, which features Cage delving into more of a hard-rock sound.
