Controversial Miami-bass hypeman Luther Campbell has turned in the microphone and adopted a new type of expression. The former 2 Live Crew rapper will be bringing his life story to Utah’s Sundance Film Festival, according to NBC.
Uncle Luke has been working with South Florida-based filmmakers and Miami’s Borscht Corporation to create one bizarre autobiography. During a press conference this past Wednesday, Luke described a sample of what viewers are in store for:
They better get ready for a lot of booty-shakin’ up there. ‘The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke’ is a cartoonish interpretation of Campbell’s young adult life in Miami, covering everything from drugs and sex to murder.
The film’s director, Jillian Mayer, described the film as “funny,” “weird,” “Miami-style,” and “very playful.”
In related news surrounding Luke’s passionate love for his city, Miami New Times previously reported Uncle Luke’s blunt opinions when it comes to fellows rappers and the Miami hip-hop scene. To Luke, some rappers abuse the Miami hip-hop scene:
I’ve got a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money Brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami,” he tells the Miami New Times. “I’m tired of seeing these cats using up our beaches, soaking up our sunshine, taking over the nightclubs, and sleeping with our women without investing anything into the community.
The former mayoral candidate caught some blacklash for his comments, including a response from Lil Wayne, but the man loves his city.
