Back From the Dead, Stringer Bell Set To Release Album

In WTF? News, the actor who played Stringer Bell on HBO’s highly acclaimed series The Wire (and, more recently, a brief run as Charles on The Office, or Beyonce’s man in Obsessed), is preparing to release an album later on this year.  NME is reporting that Idris Elba (better knows as Driis is music circles) will release a single called “Please Be True” in July, and a full length later in 2009.

Judging what’s already been released, he should probably use his talents for acting and leave the music to Cheese.  The beat itself isn’t terrible, but his voice makes me want to use his character’s product.
