ABOUT ‘BAD DAD REHAB’
Winner of the 2015 American Black Film Festival Screenplay Competition sponsored by TV One, Bad Dad Rehab is about four men who are fathers to their children, but not dads. Shawn (Wesley Jonathan) wants to see his kids, but his vengeful ex-wife wants the back child support he owes first. Tristan (Robert R’ichard) would rather pay out of pocket for a pair of designer sneakers than a fraction of that for his child’s winter coat. Jared (Rob Riley) is a single guy who prefers to pay child support instead of pay attention to his teenage daughter.

And rounding out the crew is Pierre (Rick Gonzalez) who just doesn’t give a damn about his son – period. After turbulence with their respective baby mamas and ex-wives force them to take definitive action, the guys sign up for Deadbeat Dad Rehab to help them get their act together. Through all the hilarity, hijinks, drama and soul-searching, the guys discover that fatherhood is less about making babies, and more about becoming men.

A Town Legend “Bonecrusher” and his wife “Storytellah” presented their love through music by sharing some of their hits from their music project, “Project 143” which is a project about Love… It’s a love story about their past, their pain, winning and where they want to go in the future. The music from “Project 143” is a funk/soulful type sound which portrays an “intelligence” type of sound. Bone still has that energetic sound/delivery in his music and from what I can see they are definitely winning ! Special surprise performances and guest from last nights events were none other than Chrystaltheprototype, Onemanyang from the Ying Yang twins, Musiqsoulchild, Dana Dane and more ! The event was hosted by none other than Rickey Smiley who definitely had the crowd entertained ! Special thanks to Bonecrusher for the invite of this epic event ! Check out the video  !
