Boston emcee Slaine is starting to carve out a nice little side line as an actor. The rapper had supporting roles in Ben Affleck’s two Bean Town-set crime dramas, 2007’s Gone Baby Gone and last year’s The Town, and now he’s set to appear on NBC’s new series The Cape. The episode will air on February 28th. Slaine isn’t the first person with a Hip Hop background to feature on the show, Romeo has a recurring role on the program as well.
As for Slaine’s day job, fans will have to be a bit more patient. The rappers forthcoming album, A World With No Skies, has been delayed yet again. The album, which originally was scheduled to drop last October, has now been bumped again, from February to May.
Slaine is currently scheduled to appear as the opening act on House of Pain’s reunion tour which runs from March 14th to April 28th.
