The Movie Game
My people, my people.
I know it’s been a minute, but don’t worry, I haven’t just been layin’ on my fat ass. I been grindin’. We finally got the investor packages put together for the 4 fuckin’ scripts that I managed to write in ’08 (might be another one if I can get it finished before the end of the month.) So please forgive the absence. I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted.
As most of you know, my new book Sinderella came out in November and I went on a bit of a marketing flurry to try and make a few dollars on it and then next thing I knew the movie stuff started to get legs, then I looked up and the month had blown by me!
So I figured I’d take the time to get y’all updated on what’s goin’ on my hectic little world. I believe that these times are much like the incredible times of the great depression. They say that during that time a lot of people became filthy rich and other people were jumping out of windows to their deaths. Well, everybody knows it’s a rare day that a nigga just jumps out of a window so suffice it to say that I chose the other option. I think that opportunity is finally meeting preparation and the magic dance has begun. We’ve been busting our asses trying to get these investor packages done so that we could finally start to solicit funds to get the films made. And finally we’ve arrived and now the meetings are lining up.
Realistically you can’t step to a millionaire asking for money and not have your shit together. At least that’s the way I see it. Many of these folks have actually worked hard for their wealth and don’t have any intention of going broke. So I can understand why they don’t wanna sit down with some fake ass niggas who ain’t got they shit together. So we worked and worked and waited and worked and waited and worked until we had polished the scripts and gotten the legal and investor shit to the point where we had a very strong package worthy of any prospective investor’s attention.

So that’s what we did. We’ve built the production company and we’ve got strong content that can blow away any urban themed films out there. The company is called Cold Blooded Productions and in the next 24 months we will be all over the world — including Nollywood (Nigerian Film) and Bollywood (Indian film). I will continue to post at least weekly, but daily just ain’t gonna be realistic any more. I love y’all, but the movie game is calling.
So please buy the book if you haven’t already and support a brutha’s hustle. Cuz these damn xmas presents are killin’ me!
