Two Chicago natives, Da Brat and Vic Mensa, have joined the cast of The Chi for Season 4.
According to an article by Deadline, rapper and actress Da Brat will guest star in the new season of The Chi as Laporsha. The character is a career truck driver who passes through beds as frequently as she passes through cities. It’s noted that the audience can expect Laporsha’s entrance to shake things up for the Williams family.
Grammy nominated rapper Vic Mensa is set to play the recurring role of Jamal, a man with an unrelenting passion to help his girlfriend and sister. His dedication to the two women will put him in conflict with Trig (Luke James) and Tracy (Tai Davis).
Created by Lena Waithe, The Chi is a modern day drama that chronicles the life of residents in a Neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago.
The Chi is currently in production in Chicago. After a delay in production, season 4 is set to premiere on May 23, 2021 at 9:00 PM ET on Showtime.
