Azealia Banks is ready to make her mark in Hollywood. The outspoken raptress has landed her debut role in an upcoming Lionsgate film titled Coco, directed by RZA. Get the deets inside…

Our fave outspoken raptress Azealia Banks is ready to take on Hollywood. Nope, not with more Twitter feuds.  The Harlem rap star has landed a starring role in a new film directed by Wu Tang Clan’s RZA (who has made a name for himself in the film industry). Azealia will play the title character in Coco, and it’s being produced by Paul Hall (Higher Learning, For Colored Girls, Addicted) and the script written by Nicole Jefferson-Asher.

According to Deadline, the drama is set in Brooklyn where Azealia will play a twenty-something rapper who wants a career in Hip Hop. While she dreams of making it big in the entertainment industry, her parents want her to finish college.

Instead of following her dream, she decides to go to college and discovers the power of spoke word, which in turn, helps her goal as a Hip Hop artist. It’s supposed to have an 8Mile feel to it. Hmm….sounds interesting. We’re sure Azealia will be able to relate to her character….

No word on when the film will be released, but we’ll definitely keep you posted.

50 was in Vegas this MDW promoting his EFFEN Vodka at Encore Beach Club at Wynn Las Vegas. The rapper, actor and entrepreneur made an unexpected grand entrance Sunday and chilled in his luxury bungalow.

And in true rapper form, 50 was seen pouring some EFFEN Vodka from the bottle into the mouths of partiers in a lower level bungalow.  That guy…
 

Over in LA, Diddy hosted Playhouse Nightclub for the Finale of Memorial Day Weekend on Sunday:

It must have been hot in Miami because we spotted Lisa Raye and former "BBW LA" star Laura Govan popping their tops at the beach.  Lisa explained that they wanted to make a photo that was memorable.  "This happened becuz we wanted to come up with our OWN postcard. It was fun for us so enjoy too!! @jennlopez111 @agostinafitness @lauramgovan becuz #LifeRocks #NewBeginnings #miamiweekend."

Tyson Beckford went topless for Memorial Day too. Actually, he goes topless and bottomless at his Chippendales Revue, but that’s a whole other story….

We spied him surfing at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. He sid, "When life throws you that wave,ride it out. It’s always better in the end."

Once he made it out of the pool….Tyson snapped a pic with Mariah Carey.

Lee Daniels was also in Las Vegas.  Although Mariah didn’t pop her top for him, she gave Lee a really good look at her breasts.  Lee wrote, "Thank God I didn’t leave Vegas as planned… I gotta chance to admire kitten’s kittens. #iadoreu #kittenskittens @mariahcarey"

Author, tv personality and "Power" star Lala Anthony headed to Chicago for the weekend. She captioned, "Where I want to be….sweet dreams."

It was a family affair as La posed with Carmelo and Kiyan overlooking the lake.

As the sun went down, Christina threw on a jacket and her friends broke out the "plastic" cups.  We know what her boyfriend Lil Wayne likes to put in his cups…we wonder what they were drinkin’ on?

This fall, Christina is starring in a new series with actor John Stamos called Grandpa.  You feelin’ the short ‘do?
