OPEN CITY MIXTAPE - B.L.B
(FEAT. LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN)
Yesterday I released my latest installment in the Open City Mixtape series, a short film entitled “B.L.B” (an acronym for Bad Little Boy). Thank you to all of the cast and crew involved, as well as the cops and MTA workers who let us get away with filming underground for weeks, ha. See the synopsis below and enjoy the film, xo!
——“Jahlil, a precocious little boy from the Bronx, is full of curiosity and ambition. However, due to his struggling mother’s work schedule he spends most of his recreational time roaming New York City's transit system. There he finds refuge, explores his dreams of becoming a cop, or at minimum a hero to his mom, if he can just find a way to gain access to the “tools” he needs. He soon discovers however, that life underground is not as welcoming as it seems. The story of BLB is a realistic look at the life of an unsupervised youth in New York City and how easily a child of great potential can fall prey to the harsh cycles of inner city life.”
