‘A White Boy from Crenshaw’ is the story of infamous LA hip-hop impresario Paul DJP Stewart. He revolutionized West Coast rap with an unprecedented string of hits. Also, Stewart’s knack for promoting fresh talent was evident from his early beginnings as a street team archeologist. During that time, he became well known as a man with the “golden ear”.

Beginning with “Poetic Justice,” Stewart supervised over 50 films including “Barbershop,” “Hustle & Flow,” “4 Brothers,” and “Fast & Furious 2.” Also, Stewart has supervised music on TV shows including “Insecure” and “Snowfall.” Eventually, Stewart took home the Oscar for best song on “Hustle & Flow”.
