Idris Elba has been expanding his interest to more roles behind the cameras.
According to Billboard the British actor has launched a new record label called 7Wallace Music. The label’s first signing is French artist James BKS.
“James is a rare find,” the man who played Stringer Bell on The Wire told Billboard. “His hip-hop sensibilities transfer to the other music he makes, he’s a nice person to work with and is gonna be a strong artist in the future. It’s a huge move for 7Wallace, a small indie label.”
Prior to signing with 7Wallace, James already boasted a loaded resume.
As a producer, he’s worked with the likes of Diddy and Talib Kweli. Additionally, the creative house he launched, Grown Kid, has composed music for luxury brands including Yves Saint-Laurent and Prada.
