Producer and filmmaker Marvin Watkins has teamed with Darius ‘Black’ Henderson to put together a 15-part tell-all documentary on the music business. Titled Boss Status, hosted by Mack 10 and featuring some of the top names in Hip Hop and Rap — including Ice Cube, Snoop Lion, Faith Evans, Timbaland and more — it will be available on DVD from Urban Home Entertainment this coming Mar. 25.
The minefield of the music industry is covered with topics that include everything from lawyers, managers and contracts (all the ways you can get ripped off) to the actual recording, distribution and publishing aspects of the business … with special attention to downloads and bootlegging.
Also heading to DVD on Mar. 25 from Urban Home Entertainment is writer/director LaShirl Smith’s Sideline Confessions a film adapation of Jusbee Jones’ tell-all, “Confessions of the Twelfth Man,” combined with Smith’s own experiences as a publicist in the rough and tumble world of sports and entertainment.
Candy Boudreaux (Frankie Blair — Jacob’s Eye) is a Dallas-based marketing executive who gets fixated on pro football player Eric Whitaker (Eric Window — The Ouija Experiment).
He’s a “player” in every sense of the word, but she makes it her personal goal to “reform” him … it will not be an easy task with groupies (quick with the sexual favors), the over-the-top parties and all of the games that he’s learned to play (not just the one on the field).
