Chatsworth, CA - Two men are struggling on both ends of the volatile hip-hop scene: one reaching for fame, the other desperately holding onto that precious notoriety. During the course of 24 hours their paths will meet within the confines of this cutthroat and competitive industry. On July 20, Image Entertainment presents Just Another Day: a story of danger and deals; of stars on the rise and on the make. Directed by Academy Award™ nominated director Peter Spirer (Notorious B.I.G. Bigger Than Life) Just Another Day is available at an SRP of $27.98 for the DVD and $29.98 for the Blu-ray, and will also be available via digital download. Pre-book is June 22nd.
Just Another Day tells the story of Young Eastie (Jamie Hector, "The Wire, "Heroes"): a rapper who dreams of getting his first record deal. Willing to do almost anything to get his signature on a contract, he is thrown into a harsh business that accepts and destroys on a whim...dazzling, dishonest, irresistible. He hopes to get a deal through his hero, the legendary A-Maze (Wood Harris, "The Wire", Image Award™ winner, Remember the Titans). But A-Maze is facing problems of his own: he feels his place at the top slipping, and he will use anyone to stay there - even Young Eastie.
Featuring an array of today's hottest rap artists - Trick Daddy, Lil Scrappy, Ja Rule and Petey Pablo - Just Another Day is full of energy, passion and fury. It's a compelling look at the world of hip-hop, seen through the lives of two rappers: one ready to climb up the ladder to success, the other about to fall down those same steps. They'll fight for their careers in a world of underhand deals and over the top performers. Who will stay? Who will survive? Who will last Just Another Day?
