Hiphopbattle.com: One of the world’s oldest hip hop websites specializing in urban progressive events and films. In 1999, Velocity Productions founded Hiphopbattle.com. It currently stands as one of the world’s oldest hip hop websites.  In 2001, Velocity Productions completed the narrative feature film Hiphopbattle.com: HipHop for Life, which premiered at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and later screened at the Sundance Film Festival (2002) and Acapulco Black Film Festival (2001). Following the success of Hip-Hop 4 Life, the company produced a national city vs. city mc battle documentary series. This fifth and final installment of the series, Hip Hop Life (2007) became one of the first streaming hip hop movies on Netflix. It is now available on both iTunes and Amazon.  The original mission of the website was to end all violence within the culture of hip hop through the elevation of MC Battle competitions. Over the last decade, the website has evolved its mission into creating the Neo-Hip-Hop movement.  Neo-Hip-Hop is a rising subculture of Hip-Hop that seeks to shine inspirational light in dark places and challenge many popular and highly successful rappers over reliance on homophobia, misogyny, the “N-word”, materialism and gangsta violence in their lyrics.  The site’s first Neo-Hip-Hop film, The Low Key Savage Sunday was released in 2018 and is now streaming on Prime Video.  The company’s newest, 4K, Neo-Hip-Hop feature film, This Thing Called Hip Hop, premiered on Prime Video in March of 2020 and is now steaming at www.thisthingcalledhiphop.com

Freeway and Gillie Da Kidd Appear In New Amazon Prime Show, ‘Chase Street’ Directed by Clifton Powell

Published

on

By

Amazon Prime Video and Interstate Media Group are proud to announce the latest work from writer/producers Thomas Freeman Jr. and Denny Brown, titled, Chase Street. Chase Street is a compelling tale focused on the City of Camden, New Jersey, and is based on some of the events that took place in Camden during the early to mid 1990s.

“The inner workings of politics and the street culture in a mid size city are different than what you would see in New York or LA. That’s what makes Chase Street different. It’s Camden, New Jersey and it’s never been seen before,“ Thomas Freeman Jr..

Chase Street is a story set in Camden, New Jersey, but it’s the story of inner city America, a place where everyone is on the “chase.” The drug dealers chase the money. The addicts chase that next high. The police chase the dealers (and in some cases, the money). The politicians chase the power. Then there is the everyday resident -struggling day by day to get their piece of that elusive “American Dream” that always seems to be just out of their reach. In the race to run the city – all roads lead down Chase Street.

In Chase Street every aspect of the city, from the good to the bad, is explored in this six-episode show that is broken down in two separate parts, each containing three episodes.Thoms Freeman Jr and Denny Brown bring to life a Camden, New Jersey that is days away from a state takeover. Rose Fiori is after the billion dollars in development money and in order to do so, she recruits Aaron Best to groom him to be mayor. Best is a former NBA player who is beloved by the people of the city but besides his inexperience, Best faces another obstacle – his brother Ashley Spark Best is one of the city’s largest drug dealers.

Chase Street provides an introspective look at the dynamics that take place within inner city environments in America and the film also features a veteran cast that includes Clifton Powell (Ray, Norbit), Vincent Pastore (The Sopranos, Gotti) Taral Hicks (Bronx Tale, Belly), Jade Yorker (GridIron Gang, He GotGame), Gillie Da Kidd, and former Roc-A-Fella Records recording artist Freeway that make this a must see show.
