Click link to listen:
Last week, I was able to be a part of a dope podcast called “Rest .In. Pictures.” The premise of the podcast (hosted by Aaron Prescott and Brad Gullickson) is give in-depth look at the history of those that passed into celluloid Heaven. Due to my blog “Thank You, John Singleton”, I was invited over to record and the following two hours is what follows:
What critics got wrong about Poetic Justice
How does Aaron prepare eggs after watching Baby Boy?
Peoples Hernandez. Great villain or greatest villain?
Description from Rest .In. Pictures:
John Daniel Singleton’s (1968 - 2019) first film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director earning him the honor as not only the youngest filmmaker but the first African-American to ever receive the nomination. His distinctive voice coming out of South Central Los Angeles would resonate what it meant to grow up black in modern America.
John was a kind man, a loving father, and a devoted filmmaker that provided a voice and message for those that didn’t have one. Aaron and Brad are joined by good friend and DMV MC PHZ-Sicks as they survive the mean streets of BOYZ N THE HOOD, pay off their student loans in HIGHER LEARNING, wear their finest Egyptian cotton for SHAFT, and more!
