Ice T & Scarface Gritty Street Drama, “The Ghetto” Gets Picked Up by Industry Level Music & Film Group

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 07/25/2014 — In its latest aggressive pre-buy to line its slate with star-driven pictures, B-Squared Entertainment, has a month before the Toronto Film Festival, closed a deal to acquire international rights to “The Ghetto”, the gritty street drama feature that stars Scarface, Ice T, Tyrin Turner and De’aundre Bonds.

It was directed by respected helmer Manzie Jones, an emmy nominated producer, whose previous directorial credits include Buried Alive and Paranoid Activity 2. The film was expected to be one of the hot titles for domestic and international distribution at the upcoming TIFF market that starts September 4th. The deal was made by B-Squared Co-CEO’s Mark Berry & Frank Blenman in association with Ian Martin at Industry Level Music & Film Group. It is a commitment for a wide release inclusive of broadcast internationally.

Based on the Scarface and Manzie Jones script, three childhood friends – B, 3D, and Moose, played by Scarface, De’aundre Bonds, and Tyrin Turner respectively – grow up in the inner city of Los Angeles. B turns his ability to organize and recruit to the drug trade when the local drug dealer is shot and killed. B has all the skills needed to thrive and never one to shy away from violence, B turns his neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods into his own personal empire.

As a grown up, B thrives, until a new player starts to muscle in. The new drug kingpin is named Victor, played by Ice T. Victor pushes his drugs into B’s neighborhoods and upsets the status quo. B attempts to push Victor back out of his neighborhoods without resorting to violence, but his attempts fail. Now it’s time for all-out war. As tit-for-tat violence escalates between the feuding gangs, it becomes apparent that only the man willing to abandon everything he cares about will remain standing.

Mr. Mark Berry said, “Manzie and Scarface have made a bold, epic, and emotionally generous saga, once again showing a master’s hand in eliciting searingly beautiful performances from the actors with whom they collaborate.”

Industry Level Music Group Teams With YouTube

12/26/2013 – Industry Level Music Group (ILMG) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Youtube affiliated companies that will make “breaking” new artists easier and more efficient.

One of the difficulties that arise from breaking new talent onto the music scene is getting the name “out there”. This can cost a lot of time, effort, and money. Hence the reason 98% of new artists never make the big time. ILMG is taking strides forward in helping independent artists receive the exposure they deserve and with this new partnership will come a waterfall of new opportunities.

The ability to bring 10 million + “real” views to a music video in a weeks time is considered a viable resource that ILMG can now offer clients. This substantial amount of views results in increased iTunes downloads, merchandise purchases, and concert bookings.

Industry Level Music Group is a private talent development firm located in New York City and Los Angeles,CA that seeks talented artists and actors to represent at major music labels and film companies. Industry Level is made up of ex-music/film executives and A&R’s who posses the knowledge and relationships to negotiate multi-million dollar recording and or film deals.

Industry Level Music Group Bring Legitimacy To Music Business

Industry Level Music Group is a private talent development firm that seeks talented artists and actors to represent at major music labels and film companies. Industry Level is made up of ex-music/film executives and A&R’s who posses the knowledge and relationships to negotiate multi-million dollar recording and or film deals.

Almost half way through the year 2013 and Industry Level Music Group has already started to collect talented artists to shop to major labels. Extensively searching the internet,club scene and talent shows by talent scouts, new up and coming talent are brought to ILMG to be vetted out by their top A&R’s. An A&R at Industry Level must have at least 6 years experience in the recording industry and come attached with strong referrals.

The talent discovered who is ready for the big leagues immediately is shopped around and a deal brokered giving Industry Level a 20% commission fee. Talent that is not so ready may be given an invitation for a development deal or any other custom strategy to help the artist move in the right direction. Industry Level’s main goal is to bring legitimacy to the music business. “We want to show the artist how it’s really done”, says A&R Ian Martin. “Everyone thinks they can become entertainment stars by listening to the radio and watching MTV, it takes practice, hard-work, and there is a little bit of a science when it comes to breaking a new artist”.

Industry Level Music Group is continuing to search for star-studded talent and boasts a 50% success rate in shopping artists (which apparently is great in the music business). “Obtaining a record deal is one of the hardest things on Earth to accomplish,” A&R Sean Davidson argues. “We put the artist in the best possible position to win, and if a major label is not ready to play ball at the moment, the artist will be able to survive just on his/her music alone with our strategies”.
