While going through hundreds of emails from artists with music & videos I just ran across this video I received in my inbox from Corey Davis the director of the new film ‘J Is For Junkie’.

I’m late in posting this video but check out what happens when Corey Davis catches up with Dame Dash. Dame Dash talks about building brands & the projects he has moving through the pipeline.

Documentary: J Is For Junkie Trailer (Video)

J Is For Junkie is a documentary directed by Corey Davis following the lives of people in the streets of Atlanta who are battling crack addiction. From the director:

“Greedmont TV and Creative Control presents J or Junkie. This is my first serious attempt at film making… Growing up I never had a father, because he was out running the streets getting high… Right around the time I was born, the mid 80′s, African-American communities across the country was struck by the crack epidemic. Which robbed us our prideful culture and instantly perverted it into a counter-culture where playgrounds became warzones and families were destroyed.

Growing up, I never really respected junkies… I Just always knew they couldn’t be trusted and they made fucked up decisions… But one day in October, I decided to start filming a group crack addicts in Atlanta who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco, infamously dubbed as the “Living Room” who share their stories and tell us what it’s like to battle a deadly addiction to crack-cocaine. Their stories would change me forever… [Directed by Corey Davis]”
