Give It Up For The Dj's Derrick Pridgen Tells Me A Story
I learned a lot from this interview with Screenwriter and filmmaker, Derrick "DP" Pridgen. DP's is the director of the feature length documentary, "Give It Up For The DJ" , and was instrumental in the making of films, Above The Rim and Crime Partners (which he transcribed from the Donald Goines novel of the same name). He tells us a story about his friendship and partnership with Jam Master Jay and the ins and outs of selling screenplays. I suggest you pay attention.
UnderGround Crip Wink Loc Tells Me A Story
In the late 90's a teenager named Wink Loc was responsible for the creation and explosion of CRIPS in his neighborhood of Flatbush Brooklyn. But he is so much more. In this episode, Wink, now an accomplished emcee, solidified by his stint on Jeezy's CTE label, tells me his unlikely story from timidness to terror. We bust a few laughs, talk about his West Coast family ties, and he shares why in the hell he asked me of all people to co-create his autobiography..
Science Projects' Michael Quigley Tells Me A Story
Award winning director (The Great Accountant) Michael Quigley is also the Director of Photography of my forthcoming documentary, Digging For Weldon Irvine. Mike is humble and so it was like puling teeth getting him to speak on his work on films like Spiderman, Smurfs and Precious to name a few. So we talk about Digging for Weldon Irvine instead, which, probably was a good idea anyhow. Major props to Mike for missing the Game (so we thought) for this one.

My mentor-in-film, and original Greenpointer, Exile Ramirez has been in the business since the early 90s.
