okay, let’s do this ‘page six‘ blind item style. ready?
what North Carolinian hippety hop rapper acted as one of the billions of little brown childrens on the set of black blockbuster The Color Purple?
got a clue? i bet you’re wrong.
…why, it’s Phonte of Little Brother, of course! told you you were wrong!
all jokin aside tho.. this is sooo dope to me. like, can you imagine bein a part of one of the biggest black cinematic events in history, totally unaware that it’d ever be as big as it got, and then have pictures to reminisce on later in life?! im jealous.
it took me a minute to figure out what was goin on as i saw the pictures though. i went from ‘damn, life was tough in NC in 1985’ to ‘…danny glover is phonte’s daddy?!’ to ‘OMG ITS THE COLOR PURPLE!’
id love to see more candids from the set, of/by/from anyone. too dope.
