Grammy-winning rapper T.I. is going to extend his impressive Hollywood résumé in the near future after reportedly joining the cast of Marvel Studios' upcoming Ant-Man flick.
While details are still emerging, Tip's presence in the likely blockbuster became public knowledge this week.
Marvel's Ant-Man has announced several new castings, including rapper T.I., Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), Judy Greer (Archer) and John Slattery (Mad Men). The film, directed by Peyton Reed, began principal photography on Monday in San Francisco. It stars Paul Rudd as its title character, a superhero who can shrink while increasing in strength, with Michael Douglas as his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, and Evangeline Lilly as Pym's daughter.

If all goes accordingly, fans will see the superhero movie in theaters next summer.
Ant-Man is scheduled for a July 17, 2015, release. It's one of several films on Marvel's busy release schedule for the next few years, with Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015, Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on July 28, 2017, as well as several untitled releases.

Kim K took to the popular social media outlet to unleash pics from their Mexico vacation getaway.
North West's mama shared a snap Monday of her #MexicoNightsWithMySexyMan (which is Yeezus, duh)! She also posted snaps from paradise with a few of the couple's friends and mused, "Nothing like listening to a mariachi band over margs & quesadillas!) And while it'd be tough to top Kim's first booty-bearing bikini shot from this vacay, she gave it her all with a farewell, full-body swimsuit shot posted Tuesday that was accompanied by the words, "I will miss you." (E! Online)
Although Ye has yet to address the rumors, various media outlets recently claimed he wanted to build a church for Kim.
"They want somewhere that weddings, baptisms and family funerals can take place for years to come," a source tells The ENQUIRER. "But Kanye being Kanye, it's going to be ludicrously over the top!" gin as soon as possible, said the source. "He'll keep adding on to the structure, so it's a working piece of art," the insider added. (The National Enquirer)

Nicki treated her fans to the not safe for work visual late Tuesday (August 19) night.
Over the course of the nearly five-minute video (which samples Sir Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back), Minaj runs through a parade of not-so-subtle imagery: She eats bananas, sprays whipped cream on her chest, plays bongos on a backup dancer's behind, and stands by as piña coladas slowly drip down coconuts. And then, of course, there's twerking: in a jungle, a workout room, a pool, a white void - all culminating in a dimly-lit lap dance on a very satisfied-looking Drake. (USA Today)
Nicki posted some sultry on-set photos a couple days ago.
Nicki posted a string of photos on Instagram on Monday (August 18) while previewing the video, which is set to drop on Wednesday. In the stills, the Young Money Queen is all over Drake. And though he's neither smiling nor drooling, we assume he was enjoying himself. (MTV)
Earlier this month, Nicki revealed a technical issue most likely contributed to "Anaconda" prematurely coming out.
"I wanted it out, and then the label came with this great radio plan to put it out next week. So what my fans don't know is that we were actually going to put the…
Footage of the Unit getting poured up has started to make its rounds online today (August 20).
Look's who doing the ice bucket challenge now. After 50 Cent accepted the challenge by Ludacris and Bow Wow, G-Unit (Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo) decide to join in on the fun. All together, the group nominated each other, as well as Lil Boosie, Angie Martinez, DJ Drama, Cosmic Kev and BIGVON. (XXL Mag)
Footage of Hustle Gang's Iggy Azalea getting poured on landed online this week.
J.Lo got an ice bath from her twins and challenged her "Booty" partners Pitbull and Iggy Azalea. Wearing an orange bikini, a screaming Iggy got soaked and called upon T.I., Charli XCX, and her "Black Widow" collaborator Rita Ora. (Rap-Up)
Over the weekend, rap stars Lil Wayne and Drake took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge last weekend.
Following tonight's "Drake Vs. Lil Wayne" tour stop in Pittsburgh, Drake took part in the popular Ice Bucket Challenge,…
According to reports, Gucci received the bad news in court on Wednesday (August 20).
Rapper Gucci Mane was sentenced Wednesday to serve three years and three months in prison after pleading guilty to a federal firearms charge several months ago. U.S. District Judge Steve C. Jones told Davis he's heard from his nieces and nephews that the rapper is a talented musician with a potentially bright future and warned him not to squander that. "You're still a young man, and you can still do a lot if you follow and abide by the law," Jones said. (ABC News)
Earlier this summer, Gucci announced plans to release new music through September.
"Eh man, it's Big Gucci, what's happening? I make music, I make money, I make enemies but my fans made me the Trap God. Big Guwop. 1017. 2014. We're still running the streets. June 17, the empire's declaring war. World War 3D the series. Three albums in one day. The Green Album by the Migos. The Purple Album by Young Thug and The White Album with PeeWee Longway. ... July 4, we're dropping Trap House 4 and September 13 I'm dropping Trap God 3. I'm locked up but still run the streets from jail." (1017 Records)

Not brief with his words, Killa suggested Bill has made a name for himself by being too one-sided.
"I don't think he's really mad at me, I think he's mad in general," Cam said in an interview. "And he's like a Donald Sterling type, just mad at anything that has to do, anything that's not what he sees as fit. Like you're on the 'Bill O'Reilly Show' and he's telling you, you know, rappers don't dress properly because I don't wear a suit everyday or I don't wear shoes. When the government goes over there to get that oil from those people in Iran, Iraq, and uh, everywhere else, they don't care that they got turbans on -- y'all gonna go get that oil, you breaking bread with them, they got a billion dollars and you ain't saying they dress inappropriately. You go over there with suits on, kiss they feet - it's all about the money. Bill O'Reilly don't say sh*t about that." (Montreality)
Back in April, O'Reilly took ample shots at Time's for making R&B diva Beyoncé its cover feature.
The pundit slammed the notion that Beyonce was empowering young girls, calling it a "load of nonsense." "Children unsupervised are doing things that are harmful to them," O'Reilly said. "Beyoncé is part of that problem." "She knows, this woman knows that young girls getting pregnant in…
Gillie gave some encouraging words to the fellow Philadelphia native.
"That's my young boy. I want to send a shoutout to Meek, he's doing his stint right now. He's in a f*cked up little predicament. He'll come up out of it though, he's strong. He'll get through it." (DMVHEAT.COM )
Despite in-person support from DJ Khaled and his crew, Meek could not escape the penal system Monday (August 18).
After a 90-minute hearing in a packed courtroom that included DJ Khaled and members of Meek's DreamChasers, Maybach Music Group and Atlantic Records teams, the judge shot down the appeal -- which could have set the rapper free as early as today. In addition, the judge demanded that Mill, born Robert Williams, completes anger management and parenting classes, as well as seek drug and alcohol treatment before he is let out. If the "Ima Boss" MC doesn't complete the three programs, the judge said he will have to do the entire six months of his sentence. (MTV)
Meek's legal team also could not convince a judge to release him last month.
Meek Mill suffered a setback in his quest to get out of jail after a judge rejected his lawyers' request for an emergency hearing yesterday. He has been jailed since July 11 for violating terms of his probation stemming from a 2009 drug and gun conviction. His lawyers filed a petition Thursday asking for the…
According to reports, both musicians want primary custody of their child.
Since the split, HollywoodLife.com has learned that Ciara wants to keep Future from spending time with their son because she finds him to be a "bad influence" and she is seeking legal counsel to get sole custody. We hear Ciara "feel burned" since his cheating happened while he was on tour and she was pregnant. Our insider tells us that she will "fight" him for custody but Future won't just stand by and let it happen, "a custody battle is brewing ... it's bad." (Hollywood Life)
Last week, CiCi jumped onto her social media page to slam Us Weekly over a story it ran.
"@usweekly I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable!," she tweeted August 13.
"Be CLEAR @usweekly. I interviewed with your Beauty Editor about Degree & Mtv HOS. U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation."
"As I Said, Thirsty!!" (Ciara's Twitter)
The post-split exclusive story posted last week on Us Weekly's…
Jonathan Hay and Michael Smith say they are willing to pay $15 million to produce an album for Jay Z titled "Continuity."
"We want to produce for Jay Z," Hay says during an interview with YoRaps. "It would be a dream of mine for us to produce a Jay Z album. It would be even more of a dream if we were the only producers for the entire album. We could call the album Continuity and really stretch Jay Z's sound musically while still keeping it Hip Hop. I’m going to put this out in the universe, we would give Jay Z $15 million upfront to produce it."
Smith agrees with his business partner.
"I will write Jay Z a check for $15 million today as an advance for us to produce an album for him," Smith adds.
Beyond offering to work with Jay Z, the production duo also says there has been speculation of actor Johnny Depp being involved with SMH.
"People speculate Johnny Depp’s involvement because his nephew, Billy Rassel, is involved with Pink Grenade," Hay says. "We are all fans of Depp and the art he…
