Urban Poetry Short Film 
This is a poetry film that will be screened at the chinese theatre. This project will be internet distribution. The film is about the dramatic pressures of the gang community and youth athletes in Compton, California. The production will take place June 19th. The director will need one mastered version of the audio file with vocals mixed to the instrumental and one without the instrumental. I would like the tone from the Youtube link provided below to be the sound and speed of my selected voice over artist. The VO artist will have a chance to see his work on the big screen. Feel free to recite any 10 lines of the poem for your audition and email jordan.kennedysmith@gmail.com. The full poem is under the short script section. Thank you!

Script Details

Compton The home of the black man who dont give a damn it's tough
Brothers that look like me live like me are trained to call your bluff
Brothers that think like me pray like me are quick to call me Bruh
Sistas that ball like me stunt like me are quick to say whats up
This is Maad City The home of Kendrick Lamar and Krump
We stay Mad livin in America the home of Donald Trump
This is a painting on my young ones blessed and dumb
This is my canvas of those who have been strapped since day one
Yall got alot of life to live don't give up that football scholarship blood
Yall got alot of life to live dont give up that jumper cuz
Don't do what the media wants you to do this aint the jungle its a zoo
They dont care if the blue gorillas kill the red gorillas in your crew
Lets just live by a code that we can all hold as true
Put down the guns and put up them hands and live to see 22
I just wanna be the one to stop death by altercation
I just wanna be the one to let you make it to your sons graduation
Or maybe see your daughters smile after you paid for that wedding vacation
Let me be here to create an understand
You are talented and a very wise young man
Your mom works that 9 to 5 to show you she's your biggest fan
Not to be hated because she missed some games my fam
Or maybe its your daddy who's never seen you flick that wrist
Hooked on drugs saying you will never be shit
But instead you let your mind become weak
Its revenge in fear that you seek
In a way you're the one who's lost sense of reality
You're the one whose heart is always hurting constantly with fatality
You're the one screaming fuck them all in county
I listen to those in the streets protesting for their rights
I listen to the news when a black kid is shot in plain sight
Bruh whats that gotta do with me and you
Bruh at the end of the day being black is cool
Look around and call it how you see fit
I see all the news outlets saying the same shit
Look at yourself for who you want to be
Leave all this gang banging to the streets
This is fruit town, p-stones, we piru
This is for Raymond Washington and Tookie Williams we crippin foo
I wanna see you look yourself in the mirror
I wanna see you banging blood while you fight the war on terror
I wanna see you banging cuz taking out your brother's carrage
Bruh you can hate or love this poem
Bruh just remember i state facts in growing
Bruh you're black and my blood brother
I don't care if we live two blocks a part and have a different mother
