Blog | Money & Violence Review #W2TM




I finally had the time to my self to relax an complete the first full season of “Money & Violence” all I can say is man this show had me hooked from the jump. I would recommend this to people who enjoyed shows such as The Wire & The Corner this brings the real street aspect into perspective from a daily angle most of young america can relate too. 

 Im gonna warn you ahead of time this isn’t a masterpiece the filming & acting isn’t perfect this was a lot of the casts first time doing this. The main thing you should be focusing on is the message they are trying to get across and the fact they did this on there own with no funding & promo and it’s gotten to this many people & has even caught buzz with the majors such as HBO & Netflix deals. 

 I’m looking forward to season 2 & future work from Cloud 9 TV. I loved the scripting the actors all spoke with a lot of intellect & dropped a lot of gems that most people even in different situations could probably relate to. The season ended on a high note alof was going on all the key characters where built up im just watching to see what’s next. Whatever you do just please check this show out email me your opinions or @ me on Twitter @NamesR4Friends I wouldn’t stare anyone in the wrong direction.

Season 1

Music ShowCase :: GREEN by @DarynAlexus

daryn alexus a young talent currently residing in Chicago pushing out a refreshing sound that many wouldn’t expect to come from this city. in my opinion daryn already has the abundant ability to use her voice as a powerful weapon while simultaneously keeping that power in check as to highlight its subtle sweetness. that ability paired with her talent for original songwriting will make her a very formidable contender in the industry, again IMO. this project is very sweet, very genuine, and should be replayed from top to bottom MORE than a few times.

(  VDon Soundz )  I made that beat a while ago , like the top of 09 . I came across a lil sample an added a dope drum break to it . At the time I was making beats with signature hooks on them then I chopped up  Big L vocals on the beat it went perfect.

( Team Moet  )  What was your breakout song?
