BLOG: Wrath of Cain

What up y’all! Nip Hussle Blog #2, Tuesday morning I’ma put you up on what shooting my first full movie Wrath of Cain was like.

The homie Ving Rhames is real tight with my manager Big U. He had reached out to him sayin he needed to get me in his new movie that he was shooting. As soon as I heard what the movie was about I could relate to it and knew I wanted to be a part of it. Not because it was about gang banging but because of what the story line and plot represented which was a blood and crip that turned out to be brothers and wound up fuckin with each other because of the trials and tribulations they went through in the streets.

The homie Gillie da Kid played my brother in the movie and was from a blood hood. The movie was some real life shit because the division that gets created in the streets between red and blue means nothing at the end of the day because you’re all men when it is all said and done and you gotta stand on your own two feet first.

Shootin the actual movie with Ving was an amazing experience because he is a real professional dude. He really brought out the best in me as a first time actor and he helped guide me through it. I’m real observant whether I’m in the studio makin a record, out in the streets or on a movie set. The first few days I noticed Ving on set about 10 minutes before each scene. He would zone out and not be speakin with anyone. I asked him what that was about and he explained to me the process of getting into character. So before all my scenes I would stop communicating with the people on set and get into character.

I’m in 90% of the movie which took place in the hood and Cybil Brand Prison in Los Angeles. The prison we shot in used to be an all women’s jail that closed a few years ago. We shot the entire movie in 10 days. I really don’t think I got any sleep at all because in between filming I was finishin’ up my first single “Hussle Is My Last Name” and Bullets Vol.3. I been pullin 20 hour days for the past month. Nip Hussle All Money In No Money Out…—Nipsey Hu$$le

    Ving Rhames is an underratted actor. Thats a good person to learn from when your gettin your start in the movies…

    Sounds like it is going to be an interesting movie because a lot of us have faced having friends or family that at one time or another have been on opposite sides and trying to balance the relationship between your set and loyalty to blood family…

    Frankly, I’m tired of the fucking gangbanger culture in LA. I have some good friends who are “affiliated” because of were they grew up or their family members. I also have some friends who are some what active, but are trying to raise themselves out of that shit, through school, work, etc. But.. Half of the gangbangers I know are bummy, scummy, broke, dirty Khaki wearing, 5 niggaz to a skinny stress blunt smoking, stretch a nickel sack into three blunts, unemployed, ignorant, alcoholic, in and out of jail on tickets and other stupid shit, every one of them raps but cant hardly read or write, still live at home in their late 20′s, aint got a car and if they do its a raggedy 500-700 piece of shit, continuation school going, never got a diploma or GED, supported Obama but could not tell you the first thing about his agenda, drug using, drug selling, loser ass niggaz. On top of that there are PLENTY of “other” examples of LA culture. So I’m sick of gangbanging, its PLAYED THE FUCK OUT.
