It comes following an announcement from STX earlier in the day about how, the always outspoken 26-year-old rapper would be joining the star-studded cast which includes “Riverdale” star Lili Reinhart and Julia Stiles, just to name a few, for the movie about how a bunch of strippers plot together to take down some of their wealthy clients, per Entertainment Weekly.

The “Money” hitmaker has spoken in the past about how she worked as a stripper before she made it big as a rapper.
Directed by Lorene Scafaria, filming for the movie is expected to get underway later this week in New York. But there is no word yet as to when it will hit theaters.
The “Jenny from the Block” hitmaker previously talked about how she’s been getting ready for the role during a recent appearance on “The Jimmy Kimmel Live” show. And she even has a pole in the house as she practices for the part.
“This is true. That is not a rumor! We do have a pole at the house right now,” Lopez shared during her appearance.
“It’s a portable pole,” she added. “First of all, this is gonna go bad… but you can practice with it there. I have a girl who comes in and teaches me.”
Lopez continued, “It’s very hard. It’s a girl from Cirque du Soleil. She’s fantastic and she works with me and, I mean, I have bruises everywhere.”
“It’s so hard. I have a lot of respect for people who do the pole,” the “Second Act” star admitted. “It’s, like, acrobatic. It’s different muscle groups and the things they do with their legs and everything, go upside down.”
“I’m like, ‘What? I can’t… hold on. Can we do that part again,'” she added. “It’s hard.”
