GANGSTA WALKING THE MOVIE by former Memphis Fire Fighter and independent film producer Morreco Coleman will compete in the Documentary film category at the 16th On Location: Memphis International Film and Music Festival taking place September 3 to 6, 2015.
GANGSTA WALKING THE MOVIE will cause delight to fans of the unique music and dance style that originated in Memphis and that some say can only be understood by Memphians. On the other hand, Memphis Rap may cause dismay to those who disparage the music as dark and sinister with frightening lyrics. “I have been working for years on this documentary,” says Coleman. “It’s a collaborative project about the hip hop-rap and dance culture in Memphis which has been underground for over 20 years. Now you get to witness our secrets.”
GANGSTA WALKING THE MOVIE is competing in its category with nine other films. The hour-long movie features a who’s who list of 30 Memphis rappers and hip-hop artists, including DJ Squeeky, Drumma Boy, MJG, 8Ball, Soni D, Skinny Pimp, Lord Infamous, Juicy J, Gangsta Boo, and Oscar winners DJ Paul, Juicy J and Frayser Boy of Three 6 Mafia.
