Coming to DVD direct, introducing Confessions of a Thug, the HIP HOP MUSICAL. ( read it again, I didn’t make it up I promise.)
This synopsis is taken directly from Amazon.com
“This scorching hard-hitting Hip-Hop musical comes directly from the streets, at the intersection where high crime, redemption and revenge meet. Through slamming rap music performances and dramatic action Southboy (Daron Fordham, Black Spring Break) a college educated street hustler, continues his higher learning on the mean streets under the wing of a retired mob boss (John Martino, The Godfather). Though the journey is dangerous, his eyes remain on the prize – to become a kingpin and find the family he has never known. As the music plays, deals are made and bodies drop. Will Southboy survive the Feds, snitches and golddiggers or will the streets destroy him?”
O the drama of it all. I’m sorry, I don’t know if I can stomach seeing a crack dealer break out into freestyle every five minutes. Its too much. TOO MUCH. People go too far.
They’re marketing this as “Jay Z” inspired. Shameless, I tell you.
I was going to post a video clip of the movie but I have a low tolerance for ghetto ish and they surpassed that in the first two seconds of the clip. A HOT MESS!! I’m not even giving you a link to the video clip. If for some reason beknownst only to God himself you need to see it, you’re really gonna have to google it.
If you do PLEASE come back and tell me what you thought. There is, of course, always the possibility that I’m just overreacting and not being open minded enough.
