Master P. Launches HollyHood Cinemas, Preps New Movie ‘Repos’

No Limit Records

head Master P. will mark Independence Day with the release of Repos,

a new DVD released on his HollyHood Cinema production company.

The film, which

stars P. Kat Williams, A.J. Johnson and Michael Blackston, is the first of 100

DVD movies the rapper will release by 2007. Each DVD will include a free CD

soundtrack.

“If I had

to compare any of my movies to any movies out there I would compare them to

Uptown Saturday Night; it’s funny, it has a great cast, and it’s meaningful,”

Master P. told AllHipHop.com.

Master P. believes

HollyHood Cinema is the new outlet for talented actors and actresses whose skills

go unrecognized due to the traditional Hollywood politics.

“I feel hands down that Kat Williams is the next Richard Prior, A.J. Johnson

is the next Bill Cosby, and Michael Blackston is the next Sidney Poitier,”

Master P. added.

The entertainment

business is focusing more on the visual entertainment due to the internet downloading

of music, according to Master P, who added that most of his consumers don’t

like going to the movie theaters.

As a result, HollyHood

will target those who want to enjoy top quality, high definition, dramas and

comedy in the comfort of their homes.

HollyHood follows

the rap mogul’s recent announcement of the creation of his reality television

show, America’s Next Hip-Hop Stars. Master P will host the show, which

will feature 12 solo artists and six groups performing hip-hop songs to be critiqued

by a panel of celebrity judges.

A $50,000 recording deal will be offered to the winning rapper and group.

Repos, slated

for release on July 4, will be available at retail stores, including Blockbuster,

Wal-Mart and Target. For more information on the movie, visit www.reposmovie.com.
