Boots Riley has long been known as a powerful writer, but now he's about to assert his talent in a new medium.
Riley has described the project as "a surreal dark comedy with magical realism and science fiction, inspired by my time as a telemarketer."
On the musical front, Riley recently collaborated with rappers Muja Messiah and Brother Ali in the song and video for a new song called "Pocket Full of Slave Owners." He also revealed some mackadocious method acting that brought the group's 1998 song "Me And Jesus The Pimp In A ’79 Granada Last Night" to life in this excerpt from Check The Technique Vol. 2 by Brian Coleman.
