Roughly 400 patrons packed out Carolina Theatre for the two screenings of HYPE on September 27. Hard to believe that was nearly a month ago. From all accounts, the show was a big success, even catching the attention of Phonte Coleman, formerly(?) of the hip-hop trio Little Brother and frontman for The Foreign Exchange.
Speaking of Phonte, it seems he enjoyed the show so much, he has joined the team as an executive producer for HYPE moving forward.
Little Brother is legendary. To have Phonte’s blessing is a sign that the show has reach and enough clout to push HYPE forward.
No official release date yet on when the show hits the little screen but stay tuned here or hypedurham.com for more information.
