Director Biography - Edwin Freeman

Born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in nearby Queens, New York during the height of the 80s, 90s crack epidemic, Edwin Freeman saw himself faced with the traps of growing up in the inner city. Edwin chose acting as a medium of escaping the adversities that he witnessed several of his close friends, and family members succumb to when he was introduced to film producer, Mark Skeete by a mutual acquaintance.

Shortly after this introduction, he would go on to star in the (2001) Skeete produced underground cult classic “DA MISSION”, which was based on two friends from Queens, New York who were trying to break into the music industry. Following the success of “DA MISSION”, Edwin would go on to portray the character of legendary hip-hop deejay Mister Cee in the (2009) blockbuster film “NOTORIOUS”, which chronicles the life and death of rap icon, Notorious B.I.G., followed up by his role as Young Pop in the (2016) hit Netflix/Marvel Television series “LUKE CAGE”.
