Hip-Hop Monologues: Inside the Life and Mind of Jim Jones
Hip-Hop Monologues: Inside the Life and Mind of Jim Jones is a musical theatrical experience, co-written by Jim Jones, using the music from his upcoming Columbia release, Pray IV Reign, as a platform. Accompanied by a live band and an ensemble of professional actors who will portray various characters from Jim’s past, Jim will perform his new songs in the context of a scripted story. It will ultimately revolutionize the album release experience and is sure to be the industry standard for years to come.
When controversial but true to the street rapper Jim Jones returns home to his Harlem neighborhood, his fame creates quite a buzz with reporters, fans, old friends and jealous enemies. After almost getting killed in an impromptu dice game, Jim is counseled by an old-school elder on how to endure the stresses of being famous and the great responsibility of teaching the next generation. Jim ultimately finds himself having to make the decision of his life: taking the elder’s wise advice or returning to his street ways at the risk of losing everything.
