"D" Lister Becomes an "A" for Animation
Shannon Tula, producer at WSE had this to say:
"We feel that Raz G. has the urban feel that will help WSE connect with today's hip youth. Sure, we have people here who have worked for us for years, who understand the animation process, and have the ability to make shows that would use their budget wisely for maximum impact. But at the end of the day...I always liked that song 'Get Ya Booty Out'"
"Man, it sure is nice to come around here and be treated the way I'm supposed to, you know what I'm saying?" said Mr. G. "After I was dumped by the record label, and ended up playin' 'thug number 2' in 'Cop Heat part 5' or some other piece of crap where I run around waving a gun, I felt pretty low. Outside- I'm just another out of work actor. I come in here, and I got 50 people tryin' to make all my ideas come to life."
What are those ideas? Raz G. continued.
"Show #1: me in school. Kids will get to see where I came up, you know what I'm saying? There will be like, me... and my friend, and like we got like 2 girlfriends each, you know what I'm saying? Plus a couple of goofy looking white dudes. For comedy. I'm gonna call it "Raz-Matazz" or "Raz-zle Dazzle" or some kinda s--t. You know what I'm saying?
Show #2: me in space, or something. Gonna be fighting monsters, saving bitches, you know?
Show #3: S--t, I don't know. Cop?
Director John Sorrencia looks enthusiastic.
"I told my daughter that daddy would be directing Raz G.'s new show. She said the cutest thing. She said, "Daddy, is he as famous as Spongebob?" Ha ha. Well, I had to admit that I didn't know. I'd never heard of him, but he's probably really famous. I'm sure to have 'street-cred' with the 'homies' after this show is wrapped, eh?"
Beginning his adventure in animation, Raz G. looks thoughtful.
" I didn't never watch no cartoons coming up on the streets, you know what I'm saying? But I learned some stuff. Deals come up- and if you're smart, you take 'em."
