Vincent N Roxxy is a crime thriller with a touch of romance that, according to the official synopsis, centers around a defiant punk rocker and a loner from a small town who fall in love after being forced to go on the run.

The film stars Oscar nominee Emile Hirsch, Zoe Kravitz, and Kid Cudi and will be directed by Gary Michael Schultz. The film is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month.

This isn’t Questlove’s first time scoring a movie. He was the man behind the music for Chris Rock’s 2014 comedy Top Five.
