Spike Lee Recruits Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane, Ed Lover for Hip-Hop Horror Movie
Published Sep 02, 2011Iconic director Spike Lee has been all over the map during the last two decades, splitting his time between TV work, films and documentaries, but he's about to out-weird himself with the release of a hip-hop horror movie.
The film is called You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Kills You, taken from the Notorious B.I.G. track of the same name. Directed by Michael A. Pinckney, the film is "presented" by Lee and follows a serial killer who takes down some of rap's biggest stars throughout New York City.
The film will include appearances from rap legends like Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane and Ed Lover, along with NYPD Blue's James McDaniel and The Wire's Michael K. Williams (aka Omar).
You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Kills You will make its debut at the Williamsburg International Film Festival on September 23.
