If you ever listened to any of Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers mixtapes of ‘Dreams & Nightmares’, you are more than familiar with ‘Tony’s Story’.
It has is being reported that Queen Latifah’s ‘Flavor Unit‘ and Shakim Compere, will produce a feature film based on rapper Meek’s track The Tony Story, which will star Meek himself.
“Tony and Ty had big dreams of getting rich. Although they grew up like brothers, once money and envy entered the equation, greed took over and loyalty went out the door. After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge.
Gold digger Kee capitalized on the built-up tension; but before she could really enjoy the fruits of her labor, she was thrust into the middle of a street war with the cost being her life.
Trust was not an option and revenge was the only thing anyone had in common. Paulie wanted revenge for his cousin; LB wanted revenge for his brother. They both had blood in their eyes and murder in mind; names were called while gunners lurked in the shadows. It became bigger than the almighty dollar and no one was safe.
Philly won’t be the same after you’re a witness to Tony Story.”
Directing will be Cess Silvera, who helmed an excellent 2002 crime film called Shottas.
