Last year, it was announced that a new skate film produced by Nas starring Erykah Badu titled The Land was in motion. The icing to this cake is the soundtrack, which features contributions from Kanye West, Pusha T, Nas, Erykah Badu, and more. Today, the first trailer for the movie was released and it looks pretty dope. Peep the clip below.
N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” exceeds expectations and tops the U.S. box office last weekend with $60.2 million. The film, which tells the story of the legendary N.W.A. rap group, was originally projected to bring in closer to $25 million for its debut. However, the movie not only crushed that projection, it also more than doubled its production budget of $29 million.
The success of “Straight Outta Compton” represents a huge win for Hip Hop. As the culture takes strides toward gaining respect, “Compton” has the best selling R-rated movie opening ever. It appears that ticket sales will have a bigger impact than record sales on the genre this year.
This movie will surely go down as a classic, now sitting in the company of films like “Boyz n the Hood,” and “Menace II Society.”
“Straight Outta Compton” is definitely a must see, so do yourself a favor and be sure to check it out.
Since the demise of Roc-A-Fella Records nearly ten years ago, Dame Dash has found little mainstream success. Known for his fast-talking and attraction for big lights, Dash is now a mere shadow of the Hip Hop Icon he was once thought to be. However, like any strong willed entrepreneur, Dash is far from accepting that his run at success is over. Most recently Dash and Kanye West have launched their own joint venture and we have a sneak peek of their first project below.
The project is a new film titled, Too Honorable. The movie features appearances from Cam’ron, Stacey Dash, Styles P, Murda Mook, and more. The Damon Dash Studios film is scheduled to release May 25th on Poppingtongroup.com. A mixtape for the movie is in the works as well and it will be executive-produced by Dame Dash and Kanye West.
