Uncle Luke just may be bringing the 2 Live Crew’s story to the big screen! It seems like the success surrounding NWA’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ biopic has sparked some interest in him doing so. Uncle Luke just released his book, ‘The Book of Luke’ about his controversial experiences in Hip Hop. Now he’s looking to possibly turn the book into a film.

Luke said at a convention with the National Association of Black Journalists,

“With the (buzz) of ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ people wanna hear the story of 2 Live Crew. They didn’t go to jail. They didn’t go to the Supreme Court.”

2 Live Crew was known for their raunchy lyrics and accompanying visuals. When we think of Uncle Luke we think of wild fun and Freaknik! Are you ready to see the 2 Live Crew’s story come to the big screen?!

“Like Empire, it’s set against the backdrop of the music business but from a very different perspective,” FOX chairman and CEO Gary Newman said in a statement. “Set Atlanta, it’s about three girls who come together to form a band and it’s about their rise to the top in a very challenging business. It’s the perspective of the artist and, without getting too much into the storyline, one of our characters is rising out of poverty and there is a a lot from Lee’s own life that’s baked into the DNA of this project.”
