50 Cent premieres 'Tapia' Documentary at L.A Film Festival | Film News

tapia-premiere-2
Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent extends his executive producer CV to his list of many talents as the Queens rapper premiered new documentary Tapia at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Wednesday (19th June). 50 teamed up with producer Lou DiBella on this project which centres around the life of legendary boxer Johnny Tapia.

The late boxer experienced a childhood full of turmoil, orphaned by the age of eight after his mother was brutally murdered and at the tender age of nine he turned to boxing for solace. Plagued by tragedy throughout his life Tapia still triumphed in the ring and his memory will remain as one of a sports legend whose life came to an end at the age of 45. Director Eddie Alcazar captures some of Johnny's last moments as he speaks on his addiction to drugs and the highs of success.

50 spoke to Variety on what drew him to the project stating “I was drawn to the intensity of this project. 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.”
