Now, the producer has released an edgy and politically-charged short film inspired by his 2019 release. Directed by Hezues R, Shots Fired follows a day in the life of a white student at a predominantly black school, where he becomes an easy target for bullies after donning a MAGA hat. Eventually, the kid teams up with a fellow student to deliver and capture a talent show performance the school won’t easily forget. And, of course, it’s all soundtracked by selections from Return of The SP1200.
