New Documentary "Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton" Creates International Media Buzz

The March 10th release of the controversial new film Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton (Available on, I-Tunes, Google Play and On Demand platforms nationally) has created an international media storm. News pieces about the movie have gone "viral" being picked up by over 1,000 web sites globally and have been viewed by millions. VH-1, BET, Reuters, World Entertainment News, NBC-Los Angeles and Reuters have featured "Compton" in their media.

Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton is the third in the MVD distributed Tupac Assassination franchise, which all explore various facts and theories surrounding the unsolved murders of 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Tupac Shakur and former rapper Christopher "Biggie Smalls" Wallace. "Compton" explores a new understanding of the killing of Shakur, and alleges that the shooting that occurred in Las Vegas September 7, 1996 was not a direct attempt on Shakur, but Shakur's fatal shooting occurred because of a takeover scheme against his record label (Death Row Records) CEO Marion "Suge" Knight, orchestrated by insiders to the Death Row label.

Just days ago the internet "broke" with news that the former CEO of Death Row Records, Marion Suge Knight, stated through his attorney Thaddeus Culpepper, that Knight endorsed the Compton explanation of the means motive and opportunities that lead to the 1996 shooting. "Compton", which was based on the books "Tupac187: The Red Knight" and "Chaos Merchants" was distilled for Knight into an outline entitled "Tupac Murder Facts" and read to Knight, who is incarcerated pending charges of killing a man in what Knight calls self-defense. Knight was quoted as asking "Who are these guys" and how they knew the details shown in Compton. Knight, an eyewitness and victim to the shooting then confirmed the accuracy of the story laid out in Compton as being true. (Culpepper claims the remarks were made "off the record" and not intended for public consumption, otherwise known as "leaked".)
Over the last 20 years there has been much in the way of speculation and innuendo about that happened to cause the threat on Knight and Shakur. Police have not solved the case. Some retired LAPD detectives have posited opposing theories on who may have been behind the murders, but no one yet has come forward with a comprehensive understanding and context to the homicides until now. Fans have raved that "Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton" "wraps it up." Fan sentiment is that the story "just makes sense" and that once one understands the entire scope of the greater problem that eventually lead to the shootings, they aren't surprised by how the shootings happened- or why. Case closed.

Russell Poole, the Wallace case investigator who worked on the writing of the film, brought all of his investigation notes to the table for the directors Michael Douglas Carlin and Richard "RJ" Bond to review. Interviews with Federal investigators, prosecutors and informants drive the narrative of Compton to answer the simple question: "Were the murders of Tupac Shakur and Wallace part of a larger crime?"

Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton from MVD is currently available for rent or purchase at Amazon, I-Tunes, On Demand, DVD and Blu Ray editions internationally.

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
