Inside Hot Money Studios – Session with Ghetts




Today we will be taking out time to catch up with Studio founder Patrick Osei a.k.a. Bigshot and getting an insight into some of the names that have passed through the Hot Money Studio doors over the past 10 years.

We are chatting about grime legend Ghetts’s time at Hot Money Studios.

Ghetts needs little introduction. A past member of NASTY Crew and founding member of The Movement, Ghetts built a cult following through collaborations, international tours and a standout solo career that is still going strong fourteen years later.

Ghetts has built a reputation for innovation and pushing the grime music scene forward and artists operating on this level naturally demand perfection in the studio.

Ghetts is renowned for hard-hitting lyrics and is well respected for his flow and word play; all factors that require a studio engineer at the very top of his game. Here’s what Patrick remembers about his time working with Ghetts.

Patrick – “When we worked with Ghetts, ‘Kid D’ was producing and I was the recording engineer. Like any elite level artist, Ghetts is very particular with how his vocals sound and is incredibly aware of the tiny nuances in vocal tonality.

My job that day was to make sure the sound we captured reflected Ghetts vision. It’s an incredibly intricate job and requires not only a detailed understanding of the vocal instrument but of the artist and what they are trying to achieve.

My work with Ghetts is the perfect example of what a studio can achieve when everyone is working on the same wavelength and towards a common goal – that is the very basis of what we strive for with every artist that comes through the doors at Hot Money Studios”

“The Firing Squad”: I Cried Buckets of Tears




Sitting in the dimly lit theater, I had no idea what to expect as the opening credits of “The Firing Squad” began to roll. Little did I know that I was about to embark on an emotional journey that would leave me reaching for tissues and struggling to catch my breath.

The film follows the true story of three Christians facing execution by firing squad in a third world country. Directed by Timothy A. Chey, it features a stellar cast including James Barrington, Kevin Sorbo, and Cuba Gooding Jr. Each actor brings their character to life with such authenticity and depth that it’s impossible not to be fully immersed in their struggles and triumphs.

As the plot unfolded, I found myself drawn into a world of despair and desperation, but also one of unwavering faith and hope. The characters’ journey from darkness to light, from despair to redemption, resonated with me on a deeply personal level. I couldn’t help but be moved by their courage and resilience in the face of unimaginable adversity.

But it was the performances that truly stole the show. James Barrington’s portrayal of the protagonist’s internal turmoil was nothing short of mesmerizing, while Kevin Sorbo and Cuba Gooding Jr. delivered powerhouse performances that left me in awe.

And then there was the message of the film—that no matter how bleak the circumstances may seem, there is always hope. That even in our darkest moments, faith has the power to transform lives and bring about redemption. It was a message that hit me like a ton of bricks, leaving me with tears streaming down my face and a renewed sense of purpose.

As the credits rolled and the lights came up, I found myself struggling to put into words the impact that “The Firing Squad” had on me. All I could manage was, “I cried buckets of tears.” And I wasn’t alone. As I looked around the theater, I saw others wiping their eyes and exchanging emotional glances.

In the end, “The Firing Squad” wasn’t just a movie—it was an experience. An experience that left me feeling inspired, uplifted, and profoundly grateful for the power of cinema to touch the soul. And for that, I will be forever grateful.

The movie is set to premiere in the theatres worldwide on August 2, 2024. And this is definitely a must watch movie, reminding people of the strength of faith.
