So, I did a short mob film called 'New York State of Mind' that is showing on Amazon. I play a character David Gallo. If you have Amazon Prime you can watch it for free since its included with the Prime Subscription, but if not, its $2.99 to watch.
If you watch it, Id love for you to rate the film and leave a review.
Film Link Below.
"A New York City mob boss has been framed from multiple murders which he did not commit. He looks towards his two loyal associates to find him a way to locate the real murderer. A truss may be in the works but he knows a double cross when he sees one. He has one of his associates find his wife and bring her to his secret warehouse in the city. A double is coming, but he is shocked from who." ... Live a good life, until you get caught

Let’s rewind a bit and talk about character. Was pretty stoked to book my actor Johnell Xavier Young, at the time, as the lead role of playing GZA for @wutangclan ‘s new hit show called the American Saga set to air on Hulu soon.
Everybody knows how much time goes into one single talent but let me shed some light on this single talent and how greedy better yet petty an actor in this industry can be. I got this kid off his moms couch, procured the deal legally for him, not as his friend, but as his manager (5300 messages later of him harassing myself and his other reps to push for him and “help him get on the show) which I did.. Flew to set, ubered him to wardrobe, provided him with our teams lawyer helped and paid to boost his social media only for him to keep the +10 percent agency fee to himself which is allocated as bottom line to an agent and or manager. Unheard of. Instead of his new rep Nick Roses at Pantheon Talent to help encourage him to do the right thing. (And they both swear by Jesus, laughable) He did not.
Despite using my aforementioned resources above and saying he would pay me multiple times~ Johnell chose not to.
This is a warning for any future agent or manager to steer clear and far away from this kid.
And a warning for any actor not to skip out on his or her meals with their agents/managers as short sited-ness gets yah nowhere in Show Business. I think what’s lacking here is the “business” part of show business. That comes with education and knowing the show business 101. Clearly this guy does not.
Welcome to the game Johnell Young. #hotshot
Got a feeling we won’t be seeing or hearing much from yah after this show.
Now to focus on my loyal actors worth my time. 😁👉 #character#johnellxyoung#americansaga#deadlinehollywood#leftfieldmanagement#petty#hollywoodreporter #greedy#allforabuck#pantheontalent#nickroses#therealnickroses#hollywood#wutangclan#payyourplug#bet#joke#gza#hulu
