    Jay-Z Inspires Hip Hop Musical
    Posted by: Urban Celebrity News

    Writer and director Daron Fordham cites Jay-Z as his inpiration for his new hip-hop musical, "Confessions of a Thug".

    "Confessions of a Thug" is a gritty, underground psychological exploration into the mind of a college educated street hustler named South Boy (Daron Fordham) who becomes unfulfilled in his life of crime. The story is dramatically acted and told through hard-hitting rap performances.

    "The main character of this film combines a powerful street persona with a deep intellectual side to create a new type of urban legend. In business, Jay- Z combines his street credibility with the corporate world to achieve massive success so I used Jay-Z's image as a basis to create this film," says Fordham, who also stars in the hip-hop musical.

    Produced by Raymond Forchion, "Confessions of a Thug" also stars platinum- selling rap artists J.T. Money and The Lady Of Rage.

    In addition to "CONFESSIONS OF A THUG," The 2006 Urbanworld Vibe Film Festival will screen over 60 new features, documentaries, shorts and music videos.
