DJ Scripz is a Haitian born film maker. He came to Brooklyn, New York at the age of six years old. DJ Scripz was raised in Crown Heights Brooklyn during the 80’s. The music and the hip-hop culture influenced DJ Scripz style and creativity. Hip-hop icons like LL Cool J, Eric B & Rakim, Kool G. Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy, EMPD, Biz Markie, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay Z, Nas, Big L, KRS-One, and the Notorious B.I.G are big inspirations for DJ Scripz’s creative visionary hip-hop style. DJ Scripz is a film director, film producer, and music producer who owns Black Dymond MGNT inc.
As a DJ who is extremely passionate about the hip-hop culture, as a whole, he decided to script a documentary film detailing his experience living in Brooklyn as a young, Haitian, immigrant kid. Thus, he produced the Haitian Polo Documentary. The Haitian Polo Documentary film is based on the juvenile Haitians’ experience in Brooklyn during the 80’s & 90’s.
THE HAITIAN POLO DOCUMENTARY
This documentary film goes into detail about how these young Haitian kids were often stigmatized, disrespected, and discriminated against because of where they came from, their indigenous culture and what they had to do to overcome all these harsh challenges and treatments. These kids were often called many disrespectful names during these trying times, such as “Haitian booty scratcher,” “HBO (Haitian Body Odor),” and many others. This documentary features Thirstin Howl The 3rd (original Lo-Life founder and hip-hop artist), Sadat X From ’90s hip- hop group Brand Nubian, and Moses “Rafe” Vernau of the hit web series Money & Violence!
