Azealia Banks is known for her rap abilities and outspokenness and now, she's making her foray into the acting world with the upcoming film Love Beats Rhymes, in theaters on Dec. 1. 

The RZA-directed drama film focuses on the life of Banks' character Coco, a 25-year-old aspiring rapper who turns to poetry to help strengthen her craft. Coco enrolls into a poetry course at her school, where we're introduced to Professor Dixon, played by R&B songstress Jill Scott.

Later in the clip, a friend tells Coco that while she has potential, she won't get far in music unless she starts "putting more of yourself in your music," which leads to the aspiring rapper's introduction to slam poetry. Along the way, Coco's peers and teachers challenge her to find her own voice. 

Common, Lucien Laviscount (Scream Queens) and Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black) also star in the new film. The trailer arrives ahead of the Wu-Tang Clan's upcoming album Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues, due out Friday (Oct. 13).
