Pinckney spoke on the experience and said, “Shooting ‘You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Kills You’ and having my mentor Spike Lee come on board as an Executive Producer was a dream come true for me – working with an amazing cast of actors and hip hop luminaries, such as Doug E. Fresh and Big Daddy Kane was an added bonus.”
