Many actors have made the transition into singers (and vice versa), some have been successful and others haven’t. Jamie Foxx yes! Terrance Howard, sadly, no. Driis is the musical alter-ego of A-List actor Idris Elba (The Wire, Obsessed, American Gangster and the upcoming Marvel blockbuster Thor).
After months of rumours and speculation, Sway has now officially signed to Akon’s Kon Live label. The multi-album deal applies worldwide with the exception of Europe and the UK where Sway retains his celebrated independence and will continue to release through his own Dcypha Productions outlet.
Idris Elba, the multi talented actor / artist / international DJ, will be taking time out from his hectic schedule to support the BFM (black filmmaker) International Film Festival (September 7-14, 2007). The British- Born Hollywood actor, who confirmed his rising Hollywood status in Tyler Perry’s critically acclaimed US Box Office hit “Daddy’s Little Girls”, will be appearing at the film’s first UK showing at the ICA on September 7.
You may know him from his role in the hit US television show The Wire, where he played Stringer Bell: the Machiavellian drug dealer who everyone loved to hate. Or you may know him as DJ Driis, the reputable DJ with a dedicated following, but britishiphop.co.uk is about to introduce you to IDRIS the rapper.
