(AllHipHop News) The initial 3-episode run of the Hip Hop anthology TV series Tales drew inspiration from records by N.W.A, The Notorious B.I.G., and Meek Mill.
Irv Gotti’s one-hour scripted drama is returning to BET on October 10, and the new shows will be based on tunes from more rap stars.
The upcoming narratives were influenced by Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen,” Jay-Z’s “99 Problems”, Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story,” and Method Man’s “I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By” featuring Mary J. Blige.
Lance Gross (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne), Bre-Z (Empire), and Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight) are among the acting talent slated to appear in the latest “song stories.”
Tidal subscribers can stream unedited versions of Tales one month after their BET premiere.
“Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a rated R guy and this anthology is meant to be explicit, raw, violent, and sexual,” says Gotti. “Even those who’ve seen the BET version will want to watch on Tidal to see the true vision I had for these episodes – it will be a completely different experience!”
The director’s cut of the “F**ck The Police” episode is currently available for viewing on the entertainment platform.
