"Confessions Of A Thug" is a groundbreaking, hip-hop musical chronicling the life of a college-educated street hustler, who explores the path his life has taken. It is a new award-winning, highly anticipated hip-hop musical. "Confessions Of A Thug" stars Daron Fordham and is featured on the cover of the current edition of Billboard Magazine. "Confessions Of A Thug" has been released on DVD in the U.S. domestically by Polychrome Pictures, a subsidiary of Warner Home Video.

In addition to directing, Daron Fordham (Black Spring Break I & II) starred in and also wrote the picture. In an interview, Fordham said that he was "inspired by the entrepreneurial example of hip-hop mogul and rap artist Jay-Z to make the picture." The movie is a cutting-edge urban crime drama, with an outstanding soundtrack of original music, presented with a fresh, new approach to the genre. The movie also includes performances by multi-platinum rap artists J. T. Money and The Lady of Rage.

"This film is a morality tale. You reap what you sow. We wanted to portray that in a non-traditional way and raise the bar artistically on what an urban film can be and look like," says Fordham. By merging hard-hitting hip hop / rap performances with dramatic filmmaking and edgy photography, Fordham gives his audiences the best of both worlds. "''Confessions'' is a movie for the young urban crowd and the art crowd," says Fordham. Among other honors, the movie gained the award for Best Director at this year's 2007 San Diego Black Film Festival.

Raymond Forchion, producer of "Confessions," couldn''t agree more: "We''ve created a product that transcends the borders often set for this type of movie. The musical numbers alone elevate this picture and give it a whole new level of excitement. The soundtrack album includes eleven original hot tracks from the movie that have created a buzz on the underground and club circuits."

The March 31st edition of Billboard is on newsstands now. In addition to the cover spot there is also an article about the picture.

Starting with Birmingham, Alabama, Director/Star Daron Fordham, Producer Raymond Forchion and other stars from the picture will be touring several U.S. cities and visiting various retail outlets in the coming weeks to promote the PolychromePictures/Warner Brothers release.
