A lot of really cool things have happened this month, aside from music with another art love of mine….. FILM!! So excited to have had my movie PIMP play at The Tribeca Film Festival and I was so thrilled to have both my parents there to support me 😍!! The first feature I ever produced, started with this film at 18 and it’s just now being let out into the world in my 25th year!! Sometimes things take time but art is all about the passion/persistence you have in telling the stories that make you feel something.. especially the stories of humanity that are often left untold or half told. I’m excited for the world to meet Wednesday #PimpTheMovie
Pimp is a new movie written and directed by Christine Crokos and it stars Keke Palmer as a lesbian hustler named Wednesday. It’s a love story set in the Bronx and Palmer learns about the world of pimping from her father who was a pimp.She follows in her father’s footsteps after he dies because she needs money to support her mother and girlfriend. The plot then becomes very dangerous and Wednesday has to save her girlfriend from a potentially fatal situation. Lee Daniels is executive producing the film that has been in development for seven years. Aunjanue Ellis, DMX, Vanessa Morgan, Edi Gathegi and Haley Ramm have starring roles in the film.
