London: Kanye West is making his acting debut with "The Black Mamba", a mini-film about basketball star Kobe Bryant releasing Feb 19.

West reportedly plays the antagonist in the film directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by sports giant Nike, reports contactmusic.com.

Basketball player Bryant and actors Danny Trejo and Bruce Willis also star in it.

The film, however, will not have a theatrical release as it is part of a promotional campaign for Bryant`s new line of sneakers, the Nike Air Kobe Zoom VIs.

It will be premiered online.
