Russell “Big Block” Spencer is set to debut Block Films on Monday, March 16th, with a private screening of Gorilla Zoe’s Don’t Feed Da Animals Movie in conjunction with The Raw Report at Movies ATL on Monday, March 16th
Block Entertainment CEO, Russell “Big Block” Spencer, is gearing up to release Block Films in the Spring of 2009 after years of success in the music industry developing his own recording artists; Boyz N Da Hood, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, and being instrumental in launching the solo careers of Young Jeezy, Ciara and Rick Ross. Block Films and The Raw Report collaborated on this joint venture for the 1st feature-length movie, Don’t Feed Da Animals, starring Gorilla Zoe. Big Block stated, “I am ready to step full-force into movies and everyone will be shocked with the natural talent in this film.” The Raw Report, founded by Jason Collins and Muta’Ali Muhammad, is normally used as a grassroots promotional tool for recording artists to have a combination of visuals distributed to fans, similar to a mixtape. However, Block Films and The Raw Report had the creative ingenuity to take the DVD to the next level and create a movie complete with dialogue, celebrity cameos and intertwining music videos. The Raw Report founders expressed, “We are excited to be a part of Gorilla Zoe’s movement and pleased to play a part in propelling the career of such a talented artist.” The DFDA movie is an action-packed street narrative that relates directly to Gorilla Zoe’s album of the same title, Don’t Feed Da Animals, which will be released in stores and online on March 17th, 2009. The film features 4 music videos to accompany songs listed on the DFDA album and mixtapes, including “I Am the A,” “Break it Down,” “Talk Back” featuring Roxy Reynolds, “100, 50, 20 &10” and “Dope Boys.” The Don’t Feed Da Animals film was directed by Muta’Ali Muhammad and written by Muhammad and Jason Collins.
