Cash Warren and Chad have been pretty busy lately. Cultivating IBeatYou.com, working on a film with James Gandolfini, and getting this documentary film “Made in America” off the ground. Narrated by Forest Whitaker (Phenomenon, The Great Debaters, GHOST DOG!) and directed by Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and Z-Boys, Riding Giants, POWELL-PERALTA!), the movie weaves its way through the streets of Los Angeles to divulge our city’s complex gang history. “Made in America” recently screened to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival and will be playing at a special engagement here in L.A. soon. Stay tuned for more info.

Now that takes perseverance.
