Rapper Logic is headed to the big screen, Variety is reporting.

The artist, whose real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II (not a joke), is set to co-write and star in a new movie about his life, called Everything Must Go, to be produced by J.J. Abrams' production company.

It's being described as the “Clerks” for a new generation and co-written by Black-ish's Lisa McQuillan.

Logic's track “1-800-273-8255” was nominated for two Grammys and last month he released his fourth album, Young Sinatra IV.
