New Roc Nation Signee Def Soulja Release New Single & Announces New LP With Companion Film ‘Moonlight Marauder’

New Roc Nation Signee Def Soulja Release New Single & Announces New LP

South Carolina born, but Bronx-raised, Def Soulja caught the ears of execs last summer with the release of 42 Square Miles; his collaborative project with producer 183rd (also known for his work with Smoke DZA, Jae Millz, Bodega Bamz) and parlayed it into a deal with Equity/Roc Nation. 

Now, the new rising Roc Nation signee prepares to unleash his new ambitious artistic endeavor Moonlight Marauder; which marries his music with an exhilarating companion film.

Along with releasing his new single, “Illustrious,” Soulja has also now released details for the musical and film components of Moonlight Marauder, with the album being produced in its entirety by Sebb (who most know for his affiliations with The Alchemist and Evidence) and the film which is directed by Terrance “MF” Thomas. 

Moonlight Marauder is more than a film—it’s a sensory experience.  Inspired by Def Soulja’s (Soulja also stars in the film) adrenaline-fueled soundtrack it is a marriage of music and cinema that transcends traditional storytelling.  Moonlight Marauder is a cinematic marvel that weaves a gripping narrative of redemption, and unwavering ambition against the backdrop of a chaotic urban landscape. 

In addition to Def Soulja, Moonlight Marauder includes a sterling ensemble cast of talent, headlined by Hassan Johnson (The Wire, Brooklyn’s Finest, Belly, Clockers, Paid In Full, The Devils Own, Flatbush Misdemeanors) as the antagonist Remy, Meeko Gattuso (Mouse of Euphoria fame), Enrique Reddick (Pure Finesse, Hot Girls & June Bug), and the multi-talented Dyme-A-Duzin among others. 

Brace yourself for an exhilarating and enthralling journey like no other, as Moonlight Marauder pushes the boundaries of creativity; leaving you inspired and in awe of the limitless potential of human expression. Def Soulja’s new single, “Illustrious,” is now available, as are pre-orders for Moonlight Marauder. Def Soulja’s Moonlight Marauder film will premiere on 7-14-23 and the film’s soundtrack will be released on 7-12-23.
