Executive produced by Kurt “Big Boy” Alexander, A White Boy from Crenshaw is the story of infamous LA Hip Hop impresario Paul DJP Stewart, who revolutionized West Coast Rap with an unprecedented string of hits.
Stewart’s knack for promoting fresh talent was evident from his early beginnings as a street team archeologist and by the time he had discovered iconic LA artists Pharcyde, Coolio, Warren G & House Of Pain, the industry had come to know him as a man with the golden touch.
A chance meeting with legendary filmmaker John Singleton led to a deeply influential career in music supervision, beginning with “Poetic Justice” and resulting in 50+ Films/TV shows including Barbershop, Hustle & Flow, 4 Brothers, Fast & Furious 2 and TV shows Insecure & Snowfall.
This gritty microdoc takes you through Paul’s life, growing up in an all black neighborhood in Crenshaw and through all the trials and tribulations of his incredible career.
