The latest clip from Christine Crokos’ Pimp shows Keke Palmer has the skills to become Ms. Steal Your Girl.
In the clip, Palmer’s character, Wednesday, is a pimp who has to balance her life on the streets with her relationship with girlfriend Nikki (Haley Ramm). Wednesday gets a lap dance from a stripper named Destiny (Riverdale‘s Vanessa Morgan), a girl Wednesday is trying to add to her roster. Destiny becomes central to Wednesday’s battle for street supremacy since Destiny is tied to a male pimp who threatens to take all Wednesday has earned.
The film also stars Aunjanue Ellis and DMX and is executive produced by Lee Daniels.
Palmer wrote on Instagram about her excitement for audiences to see the film, which has finally started screening at the Tribeca and Urbanworld Film Festivals this year.
“The first feature I ever produced, started with this film at 18 and it’s just now being let out into the world in my 25th year!!” she wrote. “Sometimes things take time, but art is all about the passion/persistence you have in telling the stories that make you feel something..especially the stories of humanity that are often left untold or half told.”
