Vin Diesel took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a video introducing a very special addition to the “Fast & Furious” family: Cardi B!
“Day 86 here on the set of ‘Fast 9’,” Diesel tells fans, grinning from ear to ear as the “Bodak Yellow” rapper sits next to him.
“I know I’m exhausted,” he adds. “We all gave every single thing we could for this movie. We put it all on the table, we put it all out there.”
“I’m tired!” Cardi chimes in. “But I can’t wait. I ain’t gonna front, I think this is going to be the best one,” she says of the franchise’s upcoming ninth entry.
“We’re so blessed,” adds Diesel. “The last day of filming in the U.K. All love, always.”
“I need to take a nappy-nap. I’m ready to take my nappy-nap,” quips Cardi, sending Diesel into a fit of giggles before he ends with a plug: “‘Fast 9’. May 2020.”
Diesel’s sort-of announcement of the rapper’s participation in the new film appears to confirm what she said during a recent appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show, appearing alongside Chance the Rapper and T.I. to promote their Netflix rap competition series “Rhythm + Flow”.
Discussing her recent role in the Jennifer Lopez-starring “Hustlers”, she was asked by DeGeneres whether she wanted to continue acting in movies.
“Oh, yes I am,” she said. “Yup. I am going to film for a movie this month.” Watch:
