“A Genius Leaves The Hood: The Unauthorized Story of Jay Z” chronicles how hip-hop’s most successful rapper of the past two decades reached the top; but at its core, the film attempts to divulge the savvy and cunning business acumen of a mogul who decided being at the top of the charts wasn’t enough. This 60-minute unauthorized biography explores the mind of a man who never played by the rules and admits it. This film uncovers the price Mr. Carter paid for his success through recent controversies that include the racial debate of the Barneys deal, the feud with Harry Belafonte, and clashes with community activists over the construction of the Barclay Center. The film also explores rumors of association with the Illuminati, a highly publicized separation from the Roc-A-Fella crew, his estranged relationship with rapping mentor Jaz-O, and his break up with business partner Damon Dash. Through in-depth interviews with friends, former business partners, music industry executives, authors and journalists, this exploratory biopic gives the novice, the fan, the critic and the non-believer an uncensored look at Jay Z’s journey from Marcy Projects to Madison Avenue and beyond. As a drug dealer, turned rapper, turned CEO, turned author, turned sports agent, viewers will discover what drove Jay-Z to seek unlimited wealth, how he positioned himself to achieve this wealth, and whether criticism is warranted for someone who successfully pursued the American dream.

dame-dash-resurrects-roc-a-fella

DAMON DASH USED A DIFFERENT TECHNIQUE ON THE MEDIA THAT FOLLOWED HIM THE OTHER DAY.

HE GAVE THEM A TASTE OF THERE OWN MEDICINE WITH A FUNNY & CLEVER SPIN.

IT SEEMS THAT DAME HAS A VERY GOOD POINT ABOUT HOW NEWSPAPERS & MEDIA OUTLETS

ARE QUICK TO POINT OUT OR REPORTS ABOUT THE FAILURES & HARD TIMES OF HIP HOP OR RAP

ARTIST & ENTREPRENEURS .. THEY SHINE A BRIGHT LIGHT ON US WHEN SHIT IS BAD HE SAID.

BUT WHERE IS THAT SAME COVERAGE WHEN WE ARE DOING GOOD ?  GREAT QUESTION DAMON.

DAMON DASH HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS & MEDIA FOR A WHILE & HE DOESN’T SEE THE BALANCE IN COVERAGE

ON HIS LIFE .. CAREER .. ACCOMPLISHMENTS & NEW SUCCESSFUL VENTURES.

BIG UP TO DAMON DASH FOR CLEVER REVERSAL ON THE MEDIA *
