One of our favorite classic movies from the ’90s is Menace II Society and now the star of that film, Larenz Tate, is launching his own podcast with Spotify. Tate, who played O-Dog in the classic film, has tapped into his phonebook of legendary actors to help him out with his scripted podcast series, Bronzeville.
The podcast will chronicle the lives of players in the lottery game while illuminating the self-sustainability of the community’s African-American residents, giving you an unparalleled look into Chicago’s “policy” games of the 1940s. The series will star Larenz Tate as Jimmy Tillman, Tika Sumpter as Lisa Copeland, Laurence Fishburne as Curtis “Eyeball” Randolph, Golden Globe winner Tracee Ellis Ross as Anna Copeland, Wood Harris as Everett Copeland, Omari Hardwick as Jesse Copeland, Cory Hardrict as Casper Dixon, and many more names you know. To make it even better, the story is written by Academy Award and BAFTA nominee Josh Olson.
You can listen to Bronzeville on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 here on GlobalGrind, or download the hour-long episodes of the audio series every Tuesday on Spotify, the Podcasts app and iTunes for Apple customers, Radio One Digital, SoundCloud and more.
This is going to be lit.
