Vince Staples is making his way to Netflix. 

The rapper is set to star The Vince Staples Show, a new Netflix comedy series from Kenya Barris, who will be an executive producer on the project, Variety reports. The new show is set in Long Beach, California and is a comedy series based loosely on Staples’ life.

“I am excited to partner with Netflix and Kenya Barris on The Vince Staples Show,” the 29-year-old said in a statement. “This has been something I have been developing for some time and I am happy it’s coming to fruition.”

This isn’t Staples’ first rodeo when it comes to acting. He recently filmed the White Men Can’t Jump reboot and has been cast in the pilot for Showtime’s The Wood. The rapper has also appeared in the 2015 film Dope and had a guest appearance in HBO’s Insecure.
