American Idol, The Voice, and X Factor present new talent to network viewers each year as we watch the creative process of the making of a star.
Every now and then we discover a talent with a dream story that is inspiring. Such as is the story of Gulfport HipHop Star, Young Slugs. He recently caught the attention of top execs in Hollywood who are currently preparing for the release of a music video that is sure to transform the industry with cinematic brilliance and artistic style like none other.
The Gulfport native has attracted top stars and producers on board his "Cool" single release, notably securing top Hollywood Producer, Christian Strickland, to take on the role of Producer/Director of the video production. Impressed with Slugs’ single and natural acting abilities, Strickland raised the bar in high end production of the “Cool” project.
According to industry sources, the video is sure to take HipHop Music videos to the next level of solid presentation with the motion picture driven style of directing that Hollywood's own, Christian Strickland, brilliantly infused on the Miami set of the production of “Cool”.
“I'm a big lover of art and old films, so I love the classics. I try to mix the modern with the classic and add my own thing to it. I think Slugs brings something that has been missing in the biz for a really long time and that is a complete ‘I’m going to do me vibe’ to the industry”, says Christian Strickland, Music Video Producer.
Slugs stars alongside top model/Novelas star, Stephanie Monique, best known for her starring role in Drake's music video, "HYFR". The chemistry on screen between these two star talents is representative of outstanding acting with Strickland currently preparing to take the footage into post to do his due diligence to present what is sure to be the top music video in HipHop this year. Slugs and Monique are currently being referred to as natural screen stars that are going to be in demand once this video debuts.
With the entire buzz surrounding their powerful acting scenes, it’s predictable to say that Bungalo Records/UMGD. should have a bidding war on this video between the likes of MTV and VH1.
