Paying Tribute to One Of Dc's Fallin Stars: Filmmaker Joseph "Big Weaze" Carter

An original member of TMOTT’s WTGO (the very first online go-go radio program), Weaze is mostly noted by his contributions in the film industry. He is responsible for the filming of music videos for such artist as 32’s “Swag’s On A Hunnid”, Fatal Attraction’s “Twilight Zone”, “At Your Best” and “Bar 2 The Car”, as well as a giant list of many many more. Weaze is also the person who filmed the TMOTTGoGo DVD Magazine for us back in 2002, which was the very first magazine to ever be released in DVD format coming out of the DMV area.

Later, Weaze started his own company entitled “Metroboys Entertainment”, where he wrote, directed and starred in such films as “A Runner’s Dream”, “Keep It Gangtas” and “Keep It Gangtas II” (the latter two also starring Polo of TCB). Along with the films he released, Weaze also ran a weekly cable program called “Metro Video & Film Festival”, where he hosted the biggest support and showcase of local artists and their music in the history of that cable network.

One of the most recent things that Weaze had been working on was a soon to be released film entitled “Dead Money”, which stars actor Clifton Powell (of Dead Presidents, Next Friday, & Ray), Anwar ‘Big G’ Glover (of Backyard & The Wire), and Tray “Poot” Chaney (of The Wire).
