Random Sh*t

Ain't Nothin' But A G Thang
NBA baller Baron Davis has stepped into the film industry. The Los Angeles native has produced a documentary, Crips and Bloods: Made in America. Narrated by Forest Whitaker, the doc tells the story of the Bloods & Crips. Here's the synopsis:
Combining unprecedented access into the worlds of active gangs, CRIPS AND BLOODS: MADE IN AMERICA offers a compelling, character-driven documentary narrative which chronicles the decades-long cycle of destruction and despair that defines modern gang culture....Finally the gang members themselves articulate their enduring dream of a better life. They provide CRIPS AND BLOODS: MADE IN AMERICA with its ultimate statement: a message of hope and a cautionary tale of redemption aimed at saving the lives of a new generation of kids, not just in South LA but anywhere in the world that gang violence exists.
