Perhaps most interesting, however, is the writer who is set up to script: Aaron Sorkin. Read More »

Welcome to Death Row movie

Movies are following the pattern set by the record industry decades ago. No one believed in rappers from Compton until NWA’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ got national attention, after which the LA scene exploded.
