So I saw this trailer a while ago for “They Die By Dawn” and got so excited when I saw Erykah Badu was back on the big screen! Then I see all of these other super talented actors are on board, people like Michael K Williams (The Wire), Rosario Dawson , Isaiah Washington (kicked off Grey’s Anatomy), Giancarlo Esposito (most Spike Lee Movies), Bookeem Woodbine (he’s back think Dead Presidents), fine ass, Nate Parker (Redtails) and my girl from Shameless, the beautiful Shanola Hampton!
They Die By Dawn is a film based on the true life African American Cowboys of the old west. Nat Love (Williams), Ben Hodges (Washington), Bill Pickett ( Woodbine) and Jim
Beckwourth (Parker) meet up in the saloon owned by the gun-toting Stagecoach Mary (Badu).
A tense Card game leads each man to reveal his hand – a bounty on each of their heads. A silent pact is made – they are to have a shootout, with the last man standing taking the collective bounty, $80,000. I KNOW!!!! So look, first I have the trailer and then after that I have the new song from Yasin Bey (Mos Def) and Jay Electronica for the movie. They Die By Dawn will hit theaters this summer.
