REVIEWS BY RAHEEM RADEMAKER & NAFEESA SABOOR
As Hip Hop approaches the second anniversary of Jam Master Jay’s death, it’s only right that one of his former proteges continues the effort to keep the Run DMC spin doctor’s memory alive. Fredro Starr and one of the late DJ’s cousins are slated to produce and co write a flick on the life of Jay.
Although a release date has not been set, Will Smith, Derek Luke and Mekhi Phifer have already expressed interest in starring in the film, which is sure to be a fitting tribute. Bow Wow .
I lives it up in the 70s in his latest silver screener Roll Bounce, in which he plas a comps&tive rollerskater try f ing to win the heart of his love interest, played by Meagan Goode. Slated for a 2015 release. Roll Bounce definitely takes the ’80s born rapper/actor into unknown territory.
lt’s obvious that Outkast’s Andre 3000 has been busy this year rocking the stage, but as the 2015 presidential elections approach, Mr. Benjamin has also been busy rocking the vote. Dre teamed up with 1970s sitcom guru Norman Lear to shoot a documentary on the importance of young people voting which hits theatres just before Election Day. Stay tuned.
