THE IMMERSIVE, INFORMATIONAL & CONTROVERSIAL DOCUMENTARY, “ELEMENTARY GENOCIDE“
Elementary Genocide: From Primary to Penitentiary” exposes the socially engineered mechanism created by our government and utilizing the public school system to label elementary aged African American males as work for hire targets within the US penal system. Many refuse to believe there is a corporate attack on the minds and productivity of Black youth through intercepting their educational, economical and social development, and resulting in statistically funneling them through the revolving doors of the criminal justice system. Elementary Genocide confirms this theory and seeks to educate parents, teachers and families, so that we can reclaim our young men and ensure the future of our community. Read more…

It is the dialogue between the extremes. It has a bit of Nietzsche, a bit of Kafka and a little bit of cyberpunk.” Read more…
Kanye West’s creative house DONDA enters into partnership with Roc Nation to manage all DONDA Music.
The partnership will focus on Mr. West’s international recording brand and worldwide touring ventures.
