Murder Inc. founder Irv Gotti is proving it’s way bigger than “Tales” in 2019. The hip-hop mogul has announced plans to get behind the director’s chair for his first feature debut.
Gotti went to Instagram Wednesday to reveal he’s teamed up with movie powerhouse Paramount Pictures.
Details have surfaced about Gotti’s upcoming film project.
Through his production company Visionary Ideas and its collaboration with Viacom, Gotti is working to develop a film with Paramount Pictures. Marcus Guillory is penning a script from a story by Gotti about a rapper who sells his soul to the Devil to gain Fame and Fortune. This came about through Gotti’s relationship with Bob Bakish, President and CEO of Viacom. He will be working closely with Paramount’s Jim Gianopulos, Matt Dines, & Amber Raspberry. (Blackfilm)
A few weeks ago, Gotti and Kanye West‘s much-hyped “Brothers” collaboration finally premiered during the “Tales” premiere.
After teasing the new track as part of BET’s Tales last month, Kanye West has finally revealed his new track alongside longtime collaborator Charlie Wilson, entitled “Brothers.” Produced by Irv Gotti and Murder Inc producer Seven (Channel 7), the track debuted on the show’s two-hour season premiere late Tuesday night. Reminiscent of the “Big Brother” sound from Ye’s Graduation era, the song relishes in much of the style that early Kanye fans have craved from the artist’s current and future projects. (Hypebeast)
In early July, Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian went to Twitter to plug BET’s “Tales” season premiere and remind followers “Brothers” will finally get released.
