We all are winners, you just have to finish the race not “fast” but “smart”… I had the pleasure of enjoying the private invite only breakfast yesterday hosted by 135 agency; in the morning at the London NYC hotel in Midtown Manhattan for the premiere of the Sundance Film Festival sensation “Step“ the movie. The coming of age story as the “film industry” likes to label it, the girls featured in the film; hail from the city of Downtown Baltimore, Maryland and their story of triumph is chronologically told to us from their own views. The movie debuts in theaters August 4th 2017.
The movie is set in a school community, a charter school which had a losing step team until this particular year they gained a new captain who just happen to be their “savior” in this documentary.
The movie’s run time is 83 min.
STEP documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team against the background of inner-city Baltimore. As each one tries to become the first in their families to attend college, the girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest in the troubled city.

I tuned in to the popular social platform known as YouTube for the hottest reality show to hit the streets, ahem excuse me; I meant the Web…lol
Time is Money is a new thriller series hailing from the city of Queens, unlike it’s predecessors Respect Life and popular hit series; Money and Violence which are both based out of the borough of Brooklyn. There are so many new online reality series, one may ask themselves why consider the new treat entitled Time is Money (insert question mark emoji face)
Time is Money is based out of Queens and parts of East New York and Far Rockaway. The main character’s and plot are surrounded around the street bawse Gregory Matthews and his siblings: Special Prosecuter Lakeisha Matthews, and Junior Matthews…following the ten year anniversary of their Notorious father “James Matthew’s” death. Gregory’s character is played by the heavy hitter in Queens and creator of the series, Sonny (@sonnygoodtimes/IG) of HNY records.
Now I want to go further into details but that would take away the fun of yall finding out, whose who. What I will say is that the plot thickens in episode 1; Season 1 which had me on the edge of my seat as I watched certain characters conspire with others who… well wait that gives away the juice too… lol
Just know this… there’s your typical hood drama in the film but with a twist of mystery and betrayal which makes its seen like an action thriller on a totally different level unlike any other series online. You will be scratching ya head and asking many questions… yes I’m excited as I write this.
For view of footage , Subcribe…Watch…Repost and tell a friend to get involved… Queens officially is on the map… yes Prey B4 You Eat came first but it was grand in its own way, cause it was a movie, shout out to them…. Time is Money is a thriller with totally different components in it. Just Tune in and watch! Trust me! (LINK BELOW)
