In the upcoming film “Holy Rollers,” rapper Q-Tip (Kamaal Ibn John Fareed, born Jonathan Davis) of the critically acclaimed group A Tribe Called Quest, will be starring as an Ethiopian drug dealer known as Ephraim in the movie.
Set in 1999, “Holy Rollers” follows the journey of a young Hasidic Jew, Sam Gold, from an Orthodox Brooklyn community who innocently gets lured into the world of ecstasy drug trafficking by a friend, Barak Zimmerman, with ties to Jackie Solomon, an Israeli drug dealer.
