Death Row Records has announced plans to venture into the movie industry with the launch of Death Row Films and upcoming Sons 2 the Grave project.
Starring: Tonya Lee Williams (Olivia, Young and the Restless), Dorian Harewood, K.C. Collins, and Cameron Miles Jones
Synopsis: “a young basketball phenomenon returning to an embattled ghetto after two gunshots cut short his dream of an NBA career.”
Lara Lavi, Death Row CEO, states, “this film embodies what we’re trying to do with Death Row, to tell human stories that don’t always have happy endings, and that allow us to learn from violence and disenfranchised lives, but not glorify it.” I don’t buy that for one bit, but to each his own. One minute she says that and then the next she says, “We’re looking at film properties that relate to ‘Boyz n the Hood‘-type stories, and to power the films with Death Row music.”
