movie at the Sunshine Landmark Theater. A roughly shot biopic that chronicles the life of the snowman from birth, to selling crack at age 11 and eventually becoming the Atlanta-based trapper hip-hop fans in every ghetto have come to love. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the docu-film gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look of his rise to fame.

As someone who sees potential all the around him, the entrepreneurial snowman began using ATL strip clubs as a platform to get his music heard.
