*In a recent interview with Montreality, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa expressed his dream to someday play His Royal Badness on the big screen, reports Billboard.
“I think I should play Prince in the biopic,” Mensa said. “Prince is one of my biggest idols of all time, and he’s the real King of Pop. Some people will be mad that I said that. The reason why I’d be able to kill the role as Prince is because I got that mouthpiece, Prince was butter smooth with it and I feel like I could do it.”
Last year, TMZ asked Miguel if he’d ever consider playing Prince in a biopic. The “Skywalker” crooner balked at the thought, explaining, “Prince played Prince in a biopic… It doesn’t get any better than that.”
Miguel continued: “I would probably tell them that they’re insane and they should just probably let his movie and his legacy live on the way it is.”
