Here's your first look at filmmaker Michael “Boogie” Pinckney's feature film debut, executive-produced by Spike Lee by the way, titled You’re Nobody ’til Somebody Kills You, starring Michael K. Williams, and many others.

It’s been a long-road for the project, being initially announced in 2007! By many accounts, principal photography was completed back in September, and the film is currently in post-production. IMDB lists a release date of November 2011. There's been little media related to the film released, except some poster art.

Below, we get what appears to be our first real look at the film, in 2 clips - a character profile, with Michael K. Williams in character, and a full "unofficial" trailer, according to Pinckney.

An indie crime drama, described as a Hitchcock-styled thriller, the full synopsis for the film reads: "Set in the perilous world of the Hip Hop industry. Music and murder and collide as a serial killer with an appetite for some of Hip Hops biggest stars is on the loose. Two New York homicide detectives are thrown into a world they know nothing about in hopes to nab the killer. With a multitude of leads and only lyrical epitaphs as clues the detectives go deep into the world of Hip Hop in search of the killer or killers. In it the find a cast of characters, all who could benefit from the murders. At the center of the investigation is Manchild, a rap star who is enjoying a meteoric rise to fame but beginning to question the madness in the industry and the shallowness of those around him. When an attempt is made on his life, he fears he’s next on the killers list. The surprise ending comes to a climax as the detectives are hot on the killers trail and discover that the killer is not who they thought it was."
