It’s been three years since Murder Inc. CEO Irv Gotti first mentioned his desire to create a documentary to showcase the rise and fall of his hitmaking label, but now it appears the ball is finally going to get rolling on the project.
Taking to Instagram recently, the 48-year-old lifted the lid on news the flick will be helmed by Michael Payton – the producer responsible for the unauthorized documentary that detailed label’s (seemingly) overnight launch and almost just as quick descent. But, if that’s not enough news to get his followers excited, Gotti also unveiled news an accompanying TV series and 20th anniversary tour (both courtesy of Live Nation) are also in the works.
