Cutie Tristan Wilds, or Mack Wilds that is, is gearing up for his new VH1 movie "The Breaks." Check out the extended trailer inside, plus YBF folks reacting to their Critics' Choice Award nominations...
Last night, Mack Wilds, and his castmates Afton Williamson (the solo YBF chick holding it down), David Call and more hit up The Red Rooster in Harlem for their premiere event. The hip hop driven original movie looks like something the hip hop heads who still like MTV and VH1 would watch. Here's the synopsis:
Three friends (Mack Wilds, Afton Williamson and David Call) united by their love of hip-hop, as they work to make their big mark in the music industry. Premiering on Monday, January 4th, 2016, “The Breaks” takes viewers back to the summer of 1990 in New York City where the music industry’s artists and hustlers intersect in the dance clubs and the street corners of the city. They discover lives can be broken as fast as legends can be born. VH1’s “The Breaks,” is based on journalist Dan Charnas’ book “The Big Payback,” a narrative history of the hip-hop business.
By the way, Method Man is in the movie and plays Mack's character's father. And yes, he's still fine as all hell.
Check out the new extended preview below:
It airs January 4th.
