Spike Lee produced hip hop slasher “You're nobody ‘til somebody kills you”

Spike Lee produced a serial killer movie where some of the biggest hip hop stars are being killed. The serial killer movie has Michael Pinckney on the director’s chair and features hip hop stars Big Daddy Kane, Doug E. Fresh and Ed Lover next to Michael Kenneth Williams, Michael Mosley and Chance Kelly. The movie is aiming for a September release.

“You’re Nobody ‘til somebody kills you” is an action packed and gritty story of two New York City homicide detectives that are forced into the high-stakes world of the hip hop industry. A complex web of murder, sex, money and music unfolds as the homicide detectives track a serial killer with an appetite for some of hip hop’s biggest stars.

Detective Charles Johnson a twenty-seven year veteran of the New York City Police force is on the heals of retirement when a killer strikes. The murders are not random acts of violence however; they’re by the hands of a serial killer whose victims happen to be some of the Rap industry’s biggest stars.

In an effort to catch the killer, Joseph Francelli, a young and hip detective from the special divisions is brought onto the case to assist Detective Johnson in protecting Manchild, a rising star, struggling with the decline of hip hop, causing him to re-evaluate his life.

The film concludes with the detectives bringing the killer to justice in this urban thriller with an unexpected twist at the end, in true Hitchcockian grandeur.
