Kirko Bangz premieres

Platinum-certified Houston hip-hop heavyweight Kirko Bangz has signed to 300 Entertainment as part of the label’s new strategic partnership with Unauthorized Entertainment/LMG Music Group. Managed by D Wil [T-Wayne, Chedda Da Connect], the artist has maintained being a part of Unauthorized Entertainment for quite some time. Now, under this alliance, he’s right at home as part of 300 Entertainment’s powerhouse roster, which includes rap’s hottest new star Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Migos and more.

Today, Kirko Bangz brings you his new single, "I Just Got Paid" feat. E-40 & TK Kravitz. A kicked back anthem, the track is his second release on 300 Entertainment and the highly anticipated follow up to the single, “Worry Bout It” [feat. Fetty Wap]. Both tracks are taken from his highly anticipated full-length debut—due out later this year.

In 2011, Kirko Bangz vaulted to national prominence with the release of his platinum-selling smash “Drank In My Cup.” He was selected as part of XXL’s prestigious “Freshmen Class” in 2013, and he unveiled the hit “Hoe” [feat. YG and Yo Gotti] followed by “Rich” [feat. August Alsina]. Now, he’s on the fast track to superstardom with his partnership with 300 Entertainment.

DADDY DON'T GO ---- Premiering on Vimeo this Father's Day, June 19th

Daddy Don't Go from Pureland Pictures on Vimeo.

A Film by Emily Abt

Executive Produced by Omar Epps (Resurrection) & Malik Yoba (Empire)

DADDY DON'T GO follows the lives of four young fathers - Alex, Nelson, Roy and Omar - as they struggle to navigate parenthood.  For disadvantaged men, parenting is a daily decision.  Filmed over the course of two years by acclaimed filmmaker Emily Abt, DADDY DON'T GO illuminates the various socioeconomic pressures low-income fathers face and provides compelling portraits of men who persevere.  Epic in scale but intimate in focus, the film shows viewers how men can still be present fathers despite having limited means and facing certain obstacles.  By allowing the viewer extraordinary access into the daily lives of its subjects, DADDY DON'T GO removes the negative lens through which underprivileged fathers are currently viewed and offer audiences a new image of the American family.  

Filmmaker Emily Abt was one of Variety Magazine's "Top 10 Directors to Watch," and has produced and directed documentaries for PBS, OWN, MTV, Showtime and the Sundance Channel.  Abt earned her MFA from Columbia University, receiving a Fulbright fellowship for her thesis film.  Her documentary features include TAKE IT FROM ME (2001 POV) and ALL OF US (Showtime's 2008 World AIDS Day film).  Abt's first narrative feature, TOE TO TOE, premiered at Sundance 2009 and was released in 2010 by Strand Releasing.  AUDREY'S RUN, Abt's most recent narrative feature which she wrote and will direct, is currently in development with Paula Patton (Duncan Jones' WARCRAFT), Mike Epps (Lee Daniels' RICHARD PRIOR: IS IT SOMETHING I SAID?) and Pablo Schreiber (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK) starring.  Abt's latest documentary DADDY DON'T GO will have its world premiere at the 2015 DOC NYC.

"Nuanced and heartrending work", Nick Schager - VARIETY

"An emotional piece of that had to be made and now needs to be seen", Joshua Brunsting - CRITERION CAST


In New York City more than half of African-American children and over 40 percent of Latino children are growing up without fathers.

Fatherlessness is one of the most urgent social issues currently facing American families and is linked to alarming rates of child poverty and incarceration.

Fatherless children are more than twice as likely to drop out of high school and nine times more likely to break the law than their peers raised in two-parent homes.
