Film Description:

Black Daddy: The Movie is a utilization of my talents and decades of expertise in the creative and music industries to celebrate Black joy, pay homage to artists of color who paved the way for our own success, and curate artistic content that allows me to control the narrative of my ecosystem in Oakland, California and the world beyond.

Being an artist comes with great responsibility. Being able to control the narrative is even more important. As a father I have come to know some amazing men who use love, great caution and wisdom at the core of their masculinity. A huge component of how they raise their children, the next wave of black brilliance. Oftentimes we celebrate our heroes without ever knowing the backstory of the men and women from which they come.
