DJ Drama and Freeway Rick Ross hosted the Atlanta premiere of FREEWAY: CRACK IN THE SYSTEM, Thursday night at CineBistro. The premiere was attended by Keshia Knight Pulliam, Rob and Lisa Johnson (the film producers), and more.
FREEWAY: CRACK IN THE SYSTEM tells the story of broken dreams, drug dealers, dirty cops, and government complicity-more compelling than fiction, it’s the real story behind America’s longest war. This documentary by award-winning filmmaker Marc Levin (SLAM, Mr. Untouchable, Brick City) exposes how the infiltration of crack cocaine destroyed inner-city neighborhoods across the country. At the center of it all is the rise, fall and redemption of Freeway Rick Ross, a street hustler who became the King of Crack and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gary Webb, who broke the story of the CIA’s complicity in the drug war; whose story is featured in the upcoming Focus Features film,Kill the Messenger, starring Jeremy Renner. Featuring exclusive interviews with FreewayRick Ross, Webb’s source Coral Baca, and wife Susan Webb; former Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff Roberto Juarez; and many more. The films release date in October, 17, 2014. For more information on the movie visit www.CrackInTheSystem.com and to join the conversation follow @FreewayTheMovie
