Samuel L. Jackson, Jazmine Sullivan, Jason Derulo To Star In Forthcoming Biopic~hotnewhiphop.com
Follow @booboodigital for more prime entertainment stories. The film will be centered around the life of record executive Neil Bogart.
Famed Casablanca Records founder and executive Neil Bogart is receiving his own biopic. His son, Tim Bogart, has been carefully constructing the film over the years, and the star-studded cast has been recently announced. Neil promoted and signed artists like Donna Summer, Curtis Mayfield, Joan Jett, George Clinton's Parliament, Kiss, the Isley Brothers, and the Village People. The record executive's life was filled with lavish, disco-era parties, but tragically that all came to an end when he died of cancer and lymphoma in 1982 at 39-years-old.
According to Deadline, these are a few notable members of the cast: Samuel L. Jackson as George Clinton, Kenan Thompson as Motown’s Berry Gordy, Jason Derulo as Ron Isley of the Isley Brothers, Jay Pharoah plays WBLS radio DJ Frankie Crocker, D.L. Hughley as Parliament’s Bootsy Collins, Jazmine Sullivan as Gladys Knight, Neil Patrick Harris plays KISS co-manager Bill Aucoin, and a top young singer is about to be set to play Donna Summer. That last role still remains a mystery...for now. “My father was making $100 million a year at the height of Casablanca, but he quote-unquote ‘forgot’ to pay his taxes, and my inheritance amounted to three years at NYU, a Dodge Daytona and the rights to this story,” Tim said. “I was going to protect this with all I had.” Are you looking forward to this biopic? #samuelljackson#jazminesullivan#jasonderulo#biopic#neilbogart#casablancarecords#founderandexecutive#timbogart#donnasummer#curtismayfield#joanjett#georgeclinton

L*A*W The MC/Rapper: “While singing, dancing & playing kept my young professionalism in tact to perform in clubs & block parties with my family, it was my rapping & winning rap battles that gave me my street reputation.....The day I heard Run-DMC’s “Sucker MC’s”, LL Cool J’s “Rock The Bells” & Fat Boys “Stick Em”, Hip-Hop took over my world and as I immersed myself in the complete culture of it as it spoke directly to my generation and since I was always into verbal wordplay, double meanings, flow patterns, strong cadence & just being colorful, The Golden Era MC’s who came later had the most direct influence on me when I wanted to advance my skill level
My Top 5 MC’s who influenced me the most are Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, Rakim & Redman....Followed by Eminem, Monie Love, MC Lyte, Chino XL, Ras Kass, Black Thought, Canibus, Heltah Skeltah, KRS-One, Special Ed, Tha Dogg Pound, Royce Da 5’9, Inspektah Deck, Method Man, Tash Of Tha Alkaholics, Chip Fu Of The Fu-Schnickend & Grand Puba Of Brand Nubian & as a solo artist, my late great friend Sean Price aka Ruck
This song from my album “Tha Planet 12 Syndrome” is my dedication to Hip-Hop as a whole & my hometown that birthed it”
