Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in. A Summit Entertainment presentation, in association with Codeblack Films and Snoot Entertainment.
Absorbing the sounds of New York since her birth in Brooklyn, Tara spins a collage of sounds that captures the eclectic vibe of modern New York life.Having performed at diverse and unconventional venues around New York City, Tara is always eager to find new and exciting crowds to spin for. Early on in her career, Tara realized being a DJ is more than just playing a mix of records; it is a matter of building trust between herself and the crowd and sharing the knowledge and love the she has for the music and the feelings it projects onto the listeners. The crowd trusts Tara to become part of another great night in their lives, and she returns that favor by giving them a taste of the familiar as well as something new that may be something they have never realized was needed or missed in their musical memory.
Recording artist, self love enthusiast, fighter and activist, Ms. Boogie--formerly known as Jay Boogie--is an MC from Brooklyn, New York, of Colombian and Dominican heritage. After the release of "Jesus Loves Me Too" in 2017, Ms. Boogie is finally back to celebrate life with her fans and continue to give the voice to the underdogs, as she always has. Rapping from similar narratives as legendary east coast femcees before her time like Foxy Brown and Lil' Kim, she has managed to cultivate an organic audience solely based off of her tenacity, sass, and ferocity in both her lyricism & stage presence. With an extensive catalogue that dates back five years, with tours in four continents, she is hungry for more with her latest single "Morphin Time" that gives a preview of her musical metamorphosis moving forward.
