What TV One? You have got to be kidding me! How you going to kill Bone Crusher? Don’t you know HE AINT NEVER SCARED!!! Lol. That’s right folks, I am a little ‘geeked’ about Bone Crusher being in this movie. I admit, I’m fresh off of Essence Music Festival 2019 where I just saw Bone Crusher on stage with Jermaine Dupri, Lil Jon, Nelly alongside Crime Mob, Dem Franchise Boys, and Da Brat; and yes they gave a party. Bone Crusher was a part of that whole movement. So when he told me about this movie “Deadly Dispatch” on TV One in the Essence pressroom, what he failed to mention was that he gets killed. “I’ll get over it, I guess.” So the film stars Tamala Jones and Bone Crusher and it chronicles the tragic murder of Shawn (Bone Crusher), a well-liked owner of a struggling taxi company. Tiffany (Jones) is a local salon owner and Shawn’s longtime, high-school best friend who becomes intertwined in the puzzling circumstances surrounding his death. Unsatisfied with the police’s classification of the case being a “robbery gone wrong,” Tiffany becomes suspicious of Shawn’s grieving widow Amber (Perry). That’s all I’m going to leave you with, no more spoilers. You must watch on July 28th on TV One to see what happens next. However, for those who need more (and I know you do), check out our interviews by clicking Bone Crusher for our interview at Essence Festival and clicking Tamala Jones for our interview with her at the TV One Presser in L.A.
