First-time director Jorge Hinojosa’s 'Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp' examines the legendary life of the notorious pimp and author of seven ground-breaking books that detailed, for the first time, the dynamics of inner-city street-life. Insightful interviews with well-known artists (Chris Rock, Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, Quincy Jones), scholars, friends and family members combined with old photos, artefacts, and rare archival footage create a riveting tapestry as colourful and engaging as the subject himself. The film chronicles Iceberg Slim’s troubled childhood, his 30 years as a pimp and his transformation into an influential writer. The authentic, unfiltered, autobiographical work of Iceberg Slim is considered to be the genesis of blaxploitation films and gangster rap and continues to sell and influence artists today.
