I actually sat and watched all 25 previous James Bond movies (yes, counting Sean Connery’s Never Say Never Again) during the first month of “lockdown” in April of 2020.

Rapper Cardi B was initially scared to be working with Vin Diesel in F9. F9, which is the tenth film in the overarching Fast and Furious franchise, came out on June 25. The film, directed by Justin Lin, picks up with Dom Toretto’s peace and quiet being shattered by his brother teaming up with former villain Cipher to bring him down. The film stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Charlize Theron, Kurt Russell, Helen Mirren, Michael Rooker, Ludacris, and John Cena.
Rapper Cardi B, whose chart-topping hits include “Up,” “WAP,’ and “I Like It,” made a special cameo appearance in the film. Cardi B plays Dom’s old friend Leysa, who he presumably met while in the Dominican Republic. She reunites with him at Otto’s party at Hatfield House in London. When Dom is arrested at the party by Interpol, it turns out to be a ruse put on by Leysa and her team to help him escape.
Cardi B’s F9 cameo was arranged because Vin Diesel’s daughter is a huge fan of hers. However, that didn’t stop her from being incredibly intimidated to work with him. Speaking with People, Cardi B explained that she was “scared” because he “always plays this serious guy.” However, once she met him she realized he was “so nice, so dope.“
