The gritty thriller picks up a year after the murder of drug dealer Quadir Richards, whose death carries consequences for all who knew him — especially Gena (Erica Peeples), his love interest. Separating herself from Philly’s dangerous scene, Gena has reinvented herself as a journalist, living and working in New York City. Forced to take some time off of work, Gena is sent on assignment to Los Angeles for a career-changing story.

Though Gena is far from home, her life in Philly seems to always make an appearance. Someone from Quadir’s circle has avenged his death with a hit on Jerrell’s crew members, reigniting another war between the two crews. Jerell (Andra Fuller) is determined to get paid by any means necessary— and he’ll start with Gena.

“We are elated by the strong support for our film this weekend,” said Manny Halley, TTTG2 producer and founder of Imani Motion Pictures.

“As a producer and distributor, the highest honor one can achieve is when audiences come to see our films and are receptive to what they saw. That said, we had sold out showings across the country and the overall buzz has been fantastic. We look forward to expanding the film to additional theaters nationwide this coming Friday.”

In true Black hollywood fashion, the film premiered at a glamorous red carpet event in Atlanta that brought out some of Atlanta’s coolest (and wealthiest) tastemakers including QC’s Pee Thomas, “Black Ink” star Ceaser Emanuel and “Love & Hip-Hop” star JuJu, along with the cast and various influencers.

Ice Spice’s Super Bowl Spectacle Goes Up in Flames, Michael Blackson’s Roast Takes Center Stage

Michael Blackson didn’t hold back when expressing his disappointment with Ice Spice‘s performance at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party. The comedian took to Instagram to share his thoughts, quipping, “Tell the frozen spice girl to stop singing to me; I have a dashiki that’s older than her.” Blackson even posted footage of Spice rapping and twerking, capturing his unimpressed expression, and fans joined in with their own critiques.

“So she’s a stripper with a microphone. Got it,” remarked one hater, while another concurred, “Imagine your music being so trash you have to show your nakedness so we can forget that your music is trash 🗑️.”

Despite the less-than-stellar performance, Ice Spice was among the lineup at Rubin’s event, which also featured performances by Travis Scott and Quavo. The annual tradition leads up to Super Bowl LVIII, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to face off. Usher is slated to headline the Halftime Show, with the 49ers entering the game as slight favorites.

In a surprising turn, Ice Spice’s full Super Bowl ad for Starry’s has been unveiled. The ad features Spice getting cozy with the soda brand’s animated mascots until her “ex-boyfriend” tries to win her back. When rejected, the man’s head explosively transforms into a soda fountain. Titled “It’s Time To See Other Sodas,” the ad dropped on February 2 but held no clues about Spice’s real love life, contrary to some gossip sites’ beliefs.

This isn’t Spice’s first venture into food and drink advertising. Before her Super Bowl ad stint, she was seen in Dunkin commercials. Last year, Spice collaborated with Ben Affleck to promote her limited-time signature drink at the coffee chain. The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink’s first ad aired during the VMAs on September 12, featuring Affleck and Spice brainstorming names for the drink in a playful spot with Affleck embracing his Boston accent while Spice plays the straight woman.
