After tackling the corrupt world of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are teaming up again to develop a new project, but this time it's for the small screen and based in the world of hip-hop.

The "Wolf of Wall Street" duo are partnering with rapper Q-Tip for a new TV series based on his experiences with the '80s and '90s hip-hop collective Native Tongues. The collective, known for their Afrocentric lyrics, was comprised of Q-Tip's A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, the Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah and more. The series, which will be produced by DiCaprio's production company Appian Way, will focus on the collective's friendships and the influence their music had on hip-hop culture and young rappers.

While it may seem like an odd pairing among the trio, Q-Tip and DiCaprio have actually been close friends for years. Plus, we can totally imagine DiCaprio grooving to some Native Tongues tracks.tv show gifs
