Detroit, MI, September 23, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Universal Pictures is pleased to announce that after a number of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Universal Studios Home Entertainment's digitally released “Emperor” received raved reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. The film was directed by Mark Amin, produced by Reginald Hudlin and features an all-star cast including Dayo Okeniyi, Bruce Dern, James Cromwell, Kat Graham and Robert “7” Shannon.
The film is set in the South, pre-Civil War, and follows the harrowing journey of Sheilds Green (Dayo Okeniyi), who was an ex-slave freedom fighter known as “Emperor.” This release shines a light on an unknown hero in our history and is especially significant given the civil unrest our country is currently facing.
This timely announcement will be followed by the release of the music video and single “Unification," written and performed by one of the stars of “Emperor,” Robert “7” Shannon. This song and corresponding video highlight the current social inequities plaguing our country and calls to action those of us who want to be on the right side of history. The video contains footage from rallies all around the world as Robert "7" Shannon stood with protesters in Detroit, MI during some intense demonstrations. "Unification" is now available for download and streaming wherever available.
To avoid getting stuck typecast as the "bad guy," Robert “7” Shannon also has a number of projects in the works including the Detroit-based Television Series “RapHead Response.” This project follows three rappers-turned-EMTs on their journeys of self-discovery and growth as they provide rapid response to the vastly underserved, lower-income communities of Detroit. RapHead Response will capture the true feel of Detroit with stars like Trick Trick, Obie Trice, Spanky Hayes and more joining Robert 7 Shannon in a classic cast of characters.
