Queens Reigns Supreme Coming to TV

I saw this at AHH earlier but then the article mysteriously disappeared 5 minutes after I read it. Funny how that happens sometimes. Oh well, I guess they lose out on the link.

From SOHH:

Music mogul Tommy Mottola and the Mottola Company Options have just purchased film and TV rights to Ethan Brown’s controversial book, Queens Reigns Supreme: Fat Cat, 50 Cent, and the Rise of the Hip-Hop Hustler.

Mottola will serve as executive producer and develop the book for television with production partner Jeb Brien. The book is expected to be turned into a TV series. 

I think this is a great idea, but at the same time I’m hoping it’s handled the right way. Ethan is a great writer, with a really good head on his shoulders, so I have no doubt he felt Mottola was the way to go. On the other hand, I also know how projects like this can loose their soul when major corporate interests become involved. Of course a major publishing house ran with the book, and that came out great, so what do I know. In any event, shout out to Ethan for the major move.

    The book is hot. My thing is they say they are making it for TV. The book is rated R as far as violence goes so how they gonna put it on TV? Unless they plan to do it like a documentary which is cool with me. I’d like to see more pics of the people that were in the book past and present as well as some interviews. If they aren’t doing it like that, I’m not sure I can appreciate it cleaned up for TV unless it’s going to be on HBO or Showtime or something.

    Not really feeling the idea of making a movie from the book. Honestly I’d rather watch a documentary/movie done real raw like “The City of God” or “The Real 50 Cent” or Hotel Rwanda (The dvd had a dope documentary). It’s time for hip hop to create more raw films that really portray a sincere image of street life, greed, consequences and redemption instead of going for the big budget production and sacrificing it’s edge for money.

    Lets take hip hop “back to the streets” (Yeah, I know it’s a cliche term but fuck it”) without corporate America and let the people decide what it wants

    Watch the sceen very closely! Hip Hop shouldn’t have to be associated with the misdeeds of new york street crimes. I love the streets for their realness. The realness is people trying to survive off the few bucks they got. I see that in this book but the criminal thing about it is they flossed in front of the city with money they got from that community. Write the story from that point of view from the citizens. Please don’t glorify the criminals wrong doing.
