MELODY is a thriller unlike any other… Producer Dennis Bell scores a hit rap cd that is carrying over well on the mainstream and is sure to make its way on late night talk shows and your most popular day time shows. It’s called the YUPPIE RAP and it’s just the kind of product at Disilgold that produces another million dollar success story. Don’t say we didn’t tell you. Actually the song is being called, “The Stoopid, The Sublime, The most Ridiculous Hip-Hop Record of the Year”- Get your copy of “THE YUPPIE RAP” – DR D, Sugar Dee & The Yuppie Boyz.

I am connecting you with a real music producer. That looped stuff you hear has got nothing on this Dennis Bell. Everyone in the industry knows this. If he’s coming this close to Hip-Hop there is no telling if he will actually take it on since this what the market craves. If so, then Hip- Hop will make a major comeback with real instrumentation bringing back the talent of groups like The Roots. (Digital Distributors),

Prolific author, Denise Campbell, a long time friend of Shoot Em Up Film Media’s CEO, Chepell Chase, recently visited New York, and participated in the 10th Annual Harlem Book Fair.  She also had time to visit our office and discuss her partnership with Write II Films.  Write II Films is a collaboration between Chepell and Denise; the pair are currently working on bringing her books to the big screen.

Her latest book, A Woman’s Wrath is available under the publisher Qboro Books.  Denise’s dramatic romances are lengthy explorations of situations people universally face: wrath, passion, doubt, betrayal, and of course, love.  Another wonderful book from Denise is Love Thy Sister, Watch Thy Back.  Denise explained that this was her second book, after Spanish Eyes, and she really wanted to challenge herself.  Denise wanted to see if she could really get into the minds of the characters, truly feel them and hate them all at once.

Melody Cruz is certain her sister’s new boyfriend, the wealthy, charming and handsome Keith Taylor, has a dark past that he will do anything to hide. Wanting to protect her sister, Melody works to uncover Keith’s secrets, not realizing that in doing so, she is sacrificing her own safety—because Keith will go to any lengths, dangerous or violent, to keep himself in control.
At the same time, a man named the “Albany Predator” has been brutally raping black women throughout the city, and Melody is convinced that her best friend is the rapist’s next target. Detectives Brianna Morris and Steven Kemp are placed on the case, determined to bring the sadistic felon to justice. But when things couldn’t get anymore complicated, all evidence is turned around to reveal a surprising suspect.
Full of forbidden desire and unwavering strength in the face of danger, Melody is a chilling tale that will leave readers breathless as they navigate all the plot twists and turns. Struggling to survive until the end, the diverse cast of characters will be left questioning their loyalties, their passions and how far they might be willing to go to protect the ones they love.
