RuffNation Films Releasing announced today that its highly anticipated hip-hop documentary, “Death Before Dishonor” will be released November 7, 2006, nationwide on DVD through Vivendi Visual Entertrainment in partnership with Codeblack Entertainment. Uncensored, unrehearsed and unapologetic, director Peter Torres rolls camera as hip-hop’s biggest stars pledge their oaths to the streets most eminent mantra: Death Before Dishonor. This gritty documentary provides an unprecedented behind the scenes look at the ‘stop snitching’ movement that has gripped the nation, grabbing headlines in USA Today and the New York Times.

Torres provides a thorough analysis of the movement, the counter-campaign and hip-hop’s critical role in the controversial debate.
Is Rap superstar, “50 Cent” a snitch? Ja Rule lets loose in an exclusive interview, accusing 50 of having cops on his payroll.  The Game, Sheek Louch, Antoine Clark of FEDS Magazine and many others also weigh in on the multi-platinum selling artist’s street credibility. In a never-before-seen interview, Lil’ Cease responds to accusations that he snitched on Lil’ Kim.
