Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson premiered a documentary named Tapia on Wednesday Night at the L.A. Film Festival as the film’s producer.
The movie focuses on the life of late boxer Johnny Tapia and features interviews with Mike Tyson and Tapia’s family. Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard even turned out to support the hip-hop star’s project.
50 Cent viewed the documentary for the first time a month ago and had this to say:
“I was drawn to the intensity of this project,” he told Variety. “His story resonated with me because like Tapia, I too lost my mother to violence and grew up with limited means. It’s a heartfelt story and it was important for me to get involved with bringing this to a broader audience.”
