"I was inspired by Jay-Z to make this film," says Daron Fordham, writer and director of "CONFESSIONS OF A THUG," a hip-hop musical premiering at this year's Urbanworld Vibe Film Festival being held June 21-25 in New York City.
"CONFESSIONS OF A THUG" is a gritty, underground psychological exploration into the mind of a college educated street hustler named South Boy (Daron Fordham) who becomes unfulfilled in his life of crime. The story is dramatically acted and told through hard-hitting rap performances.
"The main character of this film combines a powerful street persona with a deep intellectual side to create a new type of urban legend. In business, Jay- Z combines his street credibility with the corporate world to achieve massive success so I used Jay-Z's image as a basis to create this film," says Fordham, who also stars in the hip-hop musical.
As a rap artist, Jay-Z has sold over 10 million records and is currently the President Of Def Jam Records.
Produced by Raymond Forchion, "CONFESSIONS OF A THUG" also stars platinum- selling rap artists J.T. Money and The Lady Of Rage.
In addition to "CONFESSIONS OF A THUG," The 2006 Urbanworld Vibe Film Festival will screen over 60 new features, documentaries, shorts and music videos.
