Oakland Drug Kingpin Gets Movie

This is sort of music news considering the consultants on this movie are some heavy hitters in the Bay Area music scene.  A movie called ‘Weight’ is coming out based on the life story of one of Oaklands youngest drug kingpin Darryl “Lil’ D” Reed who was in control of the local drug trade in the late 80’s.  Damn, by the time he was 18 he was making millions and by 21 he was facing a pretty large prison sentence on federal drug dealing charges.  Well Too $hort, E-40 and MC Hammer have been consulting on the making of this film to keep the “authenticity of the project.”  The film doesn’t have a director yet but its due out in the Spring/Summer of 2010.
