Rapper Kanye West is bringing his music — and himself — to the big screen.

The Grammy-winning West has joined with New Line Cinema and the production company Anonymous Content to develop a film inspired by his music, New Line announced Wednesday.

West will also appear in the film, a multi-perspective look at life in America through the eyes of West and various writers and directors.

The untitled project will “synthesize [West’s] vision with a fantastic group of filmmakers to create what will be a one-of-a-kind film experience,” said producer Richard Brown.

West has won six Grammy awards for his two multiplatinum albums, 2004’s “The College Dropout” and last year’s “Late Registration.”
