Oscar-nominated Filmmaker Documents Soulja Boy's Rise To Fame
The director has chronicled the Crank That (Soulja Boy) hitmaker's early life and his sudden rise to fame at the age of 17 in Soulja Boy - The Movie, and he hopes the film will show others the extent of the hip-hop star's talents.
Spirer says, "Soulja Boy is undoubtedly one of the most creative, entrepreneurial hip-hop artists I have ever dealt with...
"I think sometimes the press, the public and his peers dismiss him due to lack of understanding or jealousy, and that’s where I hope my film comes in - a straight forward intimate look at a talented young man."
Spirer is known for documentaries such as Notorious B.I.G. Bigger Than Life and Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel.
Soulja Boy - The Movie will be released in October (11).
