Cash Money Records artist Glasses Malone will executive produce his first short film titled The Division, which will feature the rapper as a drug kingpin in Los Angeles.
The Division, a Cash Money Records Film, was written by Charles Penniman and Malcolm M. Mays (Open Door) and will be directed by Max Albert, co-founder of Albert Mason Media.
Rounding out Glasses' production team include The Division Producer Darryl "Lucky" Rodgers (Assistant Director: S.W.A.T., Fire-Fight), associate producer Jamie Garnett and director of photography, Carlos Mason.
The Division centers around an L.A.P.D. Narcotics Detective named Richard Lasaro, who tracks the sophisticated drug operation run and overseen by the flick's Blu Division drug gang, which is headed up by Glasses Malone.
The flick focuses on Lasaro's professional and moral conflicts in his pursuit to bring down Glasses and stop the domination of Blu Division throughout Los Angeles.
Principle photography on The Division will begin in Los Angeles on January 15th, 2011.
