Irv Gotti, the founder of Murder Inc. Records, is hopping back on the creative saddle but this time just outside the realm of music. The Queens native directed a film for BET that depicts white people as poor, inner city dwellers and essentially flips the current state of America on its rear.
Page Six reports:
Gotti, born in Hollis, Queens, as Irving Lorenzo Jr., directed a two-hour movie inspired by the 1988 NWA hit “F – – k tha Police” that will air on BET on June 27 as the premiere episode of “Tales,” a new anthology series.
In Gotti’s tale, whites live in squalor in the inner-city projects, suffering from lack of education and lack of jobs. Blacks hold all the power, and black cops are killing unarmed whites.
“It’s a beautiful chance for me to help the world see differently,” Gotti, who also created the series and serves as its showrunner, told me. “I twisted the world around. Everything white is black, and everything black is white.”
As written on BET, Gotti will serve as an executive producer for the Tales anthology series, which will feature works inspired by other songs such as Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and Notorious B.I.G.’s “I Got A Story To Tell” across seven parts.
