Bodyguard says he was FBI undercover@LA Screening of New Tupac film-DVD drops Tue


Los Angeles, CA–Wednesday, October 17, 2007–The new documentary film Tupac: Assassination – Conspiracy or Revenge? in stores Tuesday, October 23, is controversial enough with the shocking allegations that surface in the DVD, but during the Q & A that followed the pre-release media screening of the movie in Los Angeles last Thursday, the audience was stunned to hear ex Death Row bodyguard Kevin Hackie calmly state that he was an undercover FBI Agent during his employment at Death Row from 1992 to 1996!

Hackie, who also said that “An arrest will be made in this case,” made his comments to an already anxious and restless crowd of close to one hundred people who peppered the panel with questions. Hackie joined the film makers, R. J. Bond and ex Tupac bodyguard Frank “Big Frank” Alexander on the panel for the Q & A after taking issue with an LAPD detective who was in the audience defending the department’s handling of the case, which had serious L.A. implications even though Tupac was killed in Las Vegas. More can be heard from Hackie on an upcoming bonus feature on the DVD.

The murder of Tupac has been a compelling whodunit and why? for 11 years, but with Hackie’s revelation the plot only thickens.

As it is, the new DVD Tupac Assassination already lays out the entire murder conspiracy plot surrounding the� murder of the best selling Hip Hop artist of all time. This eye-opening documentary points out all of the failures of law enforcement officials to fully investigate, follow up on leads and interview key parties involved in this tragic event. Now that the DVD will be available, the smoke and confusion caused by unsubstantiated rumors, myopic myths and urban legends will dissipate and a clear picture will appear from the confusion.

Tupac Assassination is a Bond-Age Films and Step-N-Up Enterprises production distributed by Eyecon/Fontana, a division of Universal Music Group Distribution.� The film was written and directed by R. J. Bond and Executive Produced by Bond and Frank “Big Frank” Alexander, Tupac’s former bodyguard.

www.Tupacassassinationthemovie.com is the official website of the film. The DVD will be in stores on Tuesday, October 23, 2007.

Gold-selling R&B songstress Tweet is set to release her third (3rd) album, Love, Tweet on Jheryl Busby’s Umbrella Recordings on April 8, 2008. Tweet officially came on the music scene in 2002 under the tutelage of the talented Missy Elliott with her first release the gold- selling Southern Hummingbird. The top 5 album spawned a #1 hit single with “Oops (Oh My)” a risque’ song about self love. Soon-there-after a list of who’s who from Madonna to Angie Stone to Mark Ronson called to work with the rising star. She released her 2nd album, It’s Me Again, in 2005 again with Missy Elliott. It’s Me Again was a Top 20 album on the Billboard charts and now with her third album, Love, Tweet, the “King of the South,” T.I., lends a hand with Tweet’s buzz single “Good Bye My Dear” which he produced and is featured on.

“‘Good Bye My Dear’ has that Atlanta sound, which I like,” says Tweet. “Marz [the producer] called me one night and asked me to come by the studio, Grand Hustle, and it just happened. I always wanted to work with T.I. and didn’t know how soon it would happen. But the opportunity came about and I went for it!” In addition to T.I., Love,Tweet features production by producers such as Nisan Stewart (who worked with Tweet and Missy on previous recordings), Warren Campbell, and Novel who has produced the official 1st single “Anymore.”

Umbrella Recordings’ first release was on five decade diva Patti Labelle where she released her first gospel album, the #1 charting The Gospel According to Patti Labelle. The company’s second (2nd) release was Carl Thomas’ “So Much Better.”

“Time will underscore the fact Tweet is one of the most talented vocal stylists to ever stand behind a mike. Known for her vocal harmonies and strong song writing, Tweet delivers her best most diverse release in her young career.” says Jheryl Busby. Tweet recently performed in honor of Missy Elliott on this year’s VH1 “Hip Hop Honors.”
