Experiencing Interruptions?

Land Of No Pity

Land Of No Pity ​is a riveting, suspenseful urban saga unveiling the gritty underworld of South Central Los Angeles gang culture and the influx of crack cocaine. The tale begins with the brutal murder of Big K-Mike, one of the original founders of the Budlong Avenue Rollin 90s Crips; by rival gang members from the Eight-Tray Gangster Crips. The murder triggers what will be an all-out gang war, as K-Mike’s younger brothers, Wizard and Hitter, exact their revenge on the enemy, flooding the streets of South Central LA with bloodshed and body bags.

The story continues with a parallel journey of young Elijah Hassahn, as he navigates the often ​hidden segment of American society and the urban ghettos​. ​Deprived of a father at an early age, he is also forced to watch the decline of his mother into mental illness that eventually causes her to commit suicide, with Elijah personally bearing witness to the tragedy. Raised by his Uncles, “Big 9-Lives” and “Cannon”, co-founder and leaders of the Budlong Avenue Rollin 90s Crips, they give Elijah what they know best, the rules and wisdom of the streets. And with that wisdom, and by those rules, the battle between the light and dark forces within him begins.
