The film, which is to be directed by Max Albert, looks at tensions between neighborhood leaders and police. "In the film, L.A.P.D. Narcotics Detective Richard Lasaro tracks the elaborate business dealings orchestrated by rapper, and drug kingpin, Glasses Malone," read a press release describing the film. "Under the command of an unforgiving Police Captain, with the fire power of a highly trained, but jaded S.W.A.T. team, Lasaro proceeds to organize the assaulting arrest of Malone, in the interest of finally shutting down Blu Division's illicit operations that are centered in south central Los Angeles' Watts district. Deeply rooted professional, and personal moral conflicts ensue for Detective Lasaro, as he is eventually faced point blank with the truth about Blu Division's overwhelming influence and control in south central Los Angeles."
Malone, who is signed to Cash Money/Hoo-Bangin' Records, has yet to announce a released date for his long-awaited debut, 'The Beach Cruiser.' Shooting on the film is scheduled to begin next week in Los Angeles.
