Octavia Spencer’s Madam C.J. Walker limited series will be produced by LeBron James & is likely headed to Netflix Octavia Spencer’s limited series on Madam C.J. Walker will be exec produced by LeBron James and it is likely headed to Netflix! On Tuesday, it was announced that LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment is developing the project, which we’ve known for a while had Spencer attached to star. According to Variety, who reported the news, Netflix is interested in the series and it will likely land there. It is based on “On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C.J. Walker,” said to be the definitive biography Walker, which was written by her great-great-granddaughter, A’Lelia Bundles. The book was optioned by Zero Gravity Management’s Mark and Christine Holder, and when Spencer found out about it, she has petitioned for the part for the last couple of years. Nicole Asher was tapped to write. After Spencer was officially attached to the role, James and his partner Maverick Carter, were pitched the project by WME as their foray into this genre. “I am really proud of this project and that SpringHill will be partnering with Octavia to tell this important story. “Every American should all know the story of Madam C.J. Walker. She was an innovator, entrepreneur, social activist, and total game changer whose story has been left out of the history books. I hope this project lives up to her legacy with a story that will educate and inspire,” said James. “It’s so exciting for all of us to keep building SpringHill, see it mature, and continue to find its voice. We are really focused on growing with authenticity and substance. For us, this is totally about great stories and great partners. Partnering with Octavia to tell the story of Madam C.J. Walker is the ideal first project for SpringHill to take an important step into scripted drama,” said Carter. SpringHill Entertainment currently has Survivor’s Remorse on Starz and is working on a sneaker culture comedy for HBO.

Atlanta, GA (February 21st, 2020)—Think It’s A Game Records (TIG Records) the label
responsible for launching successful artists, Trinidad Jame$, Rich Homie Quan and YFN Lucci is
gearing up for their new artists’, Rubberband OG and Posa’s {pronounced Pah- Sah},
collaborative mixtape “2 Sides of Da Bottom”. The highly anticipated mixtape will be released
Friday, February 21, 2020 through TIG’s venture with Warner Records. The duo will be following
their mixtape release with a five city tour in Georgia and their home state of Alabama. Merging
two distinct and unique vocal sounds and easily relatable themes, this mixtape does not


Label mates, Cortez Oates p/k/a Rubberband OG and Karvin Jones p/k/a Posa, may be new to
some, while considered artists on the rise by others, have created an early buzz with previous
solo efforts such as the Bout That Life mixtape by Rubberband OG (TIG Records) and Posa’s first
single, “In A Minute” featuring TIG label mate Q Money, followed by the 4 song introductory
Bolo EP. Rubberband OG, hailing from Montgomery, has garnered over 4 million plays on Apple
Music alone, meanwhile Posa from the smaller, coastal town, Mobile, has over 1.5 million video
views. Both are known in Alabama with an increasing fan base throughout the Southeast, which
this joint project will certainly expand the pairs’ following, lending anticipation to each artists’
solo project scheduled for Q2 2020.


2 Sides Of Da Bottom features 10 strong tracks with track 6, “Enemies” as the initial focus.
Whether it came from a similar upbringing or the love for music, the duo had natural chemistry
in the studio. Bouncing ideas and melodies off of each other to make a strong cohesive project
with a diverse subject matter that reflects both artists, 2 Sides of Da Bottom was born.
The intro track, “Packs from Cali,” is one of Rubberband OG’s favorite tracks. The track is
a bop for the trappers, detailing the good, bad, and the ugly of the streets. Posa favors the most
introspective track on the album, “Burn One.” An anthem for smokers, Posa says, “I don’t really

smoke like that, but this is one of those songs where you see so much or you’re going through
so much that you just wanna burn one.” He explains that the song came from personal
experiences and how he learned how to release the pressure.
“One of my other favorites on the album is ‘Even Better,’” Posa says, “That was inspired
by real life,” he says with a laugh. The song is about a woman who is “even better,” than the girl
he had before her. “She cook even better, she listen even better” The song is destined to be on
regular rotation in Atlanta’s infamous strip clubs.
In the lead song, “Enemies,” the two alternate back and forth while lamenting the
inevitable, seeing friends turn into enemies. At just over two minutes, the track is impactful as
the album turns darker in the second half. “Enemies is just one of those songs where our styles
just fit together,” says Rubberband OG.
The second half of the album shows the personal growth of both artists. On “Use To,”
Rubberband OG takes the lead talking about his former life, “I done came a long way/I was
broke/in the trap hoping 12 don’t kick the door,” he raps on the bridge while trying out his own
singing style on the hook.
The last track, “Big Dogg Sh*t,” ends the album on a high note. One of the most
up-tempo songs on the album, it’s optimistic in its flow. “That’s the one right there,” Posa says,
“We’re letting you know, we ain’t leaving nothing on the table. We’re on everything. Whatever
you’re on, we’re on it.”
“On the album, you get both of our sides of one story,” says Posa, “We are two different
artists. We have two different styles, and deliveries, but we still come together to make one
solid project. We both are from the very bottom, and we’re giving you two sides of it.”

Think It’s A Game Records has become a powerhouse in the music industry because of the
motivation and drive of Founder and C.E.O. Girvan “Fly” Henry. The New York-born and
Atlanta-raised entrepreneur, mogul and philanthropist is the visionary behind Think It’s A Game
Records. Thanks to Fly and his team, Think It’s A Game Records has quietly grown from a local
label and management company into a multi-platinum hit-making powerhouse with major
distribution, numerous awards, and a place at the forefront of the culture.
2012 marked a mainstream breakthrough for the company. Trinidad James’s “All Gold
Everything” blew up as one of the biggest songs of 2012. Not only did it earn a gold plaque from
the RIAA, but an interpolation of the track featured in Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ mega-hit,
“Uptown Funk,” which scored GRAMMY® Awards in the categories of “Record the Year” and
“Best Pop/Duo Performance.” Meanwhile, Rich Homie Quan’s star skyrocketed. “Walk Thru”
reached gold status, while “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)” went double-platinum and soared to #1 on
the radio. At the same time, TIG7 Publishing garnered a trio of BMI Awards in the category of
“Most Performed R&B/Hip-Hop Song” for “Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)”, YG’s “My Hitta” [feat. Rich
Homie Quan & Jeezy], and Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle.” In addition to BMI Awards, TIG7 Publishing
has received several awards and accomplishments for signed producer June James: Billboard
Top 40 Single with Travis Scott’s “Yosemite” which also went double platinum and Hot Single
100 with Yo Gotti’s “Put A Date On It”, certified platinum.
That success continued in 2017. Following years of development, “Fly” steered YFN Lucci to
stratospheric success. “Key To The Streets” [feat. Trouble & Migos], also produced by TIG’s
signed producer June James, marked the second consecutive #1 at radio, and it became
platinum. “Everyday We Lit”, produced by TIG’s signed producer June James, followed the third
consecutive #1 at radio, with a gold certification. Along the way, he orchestrated a high-profile
distribution deal for Think It’s A Game Records with Warner Bros. Records. Under this
partnership, Lucci’s full-length debut, Ray Ray from Summer Hill, captured spots in the Top 10

of the Billboard U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop and US Rap charts in addition to the Top 15 of the Top 200.
“Fly” has been personally featured by everyone from XXL, Black Enterprise, and BET to
HipHopDX and more.
