Pair of Crackheads Produce, Market Girls Gone Wild Spinoff For Crackheads

crackheads_gone_wild.jpgA feel-good local media story featuring David Singletary and Milton Greagory, two enterprising New York-based crackheads with a video camera, a catchy tagline and, apparently, access to crackhead-friendly video-editing software — who have been selling their Crackheadz Gone Wild DVD for $10 near the Apollo Theater.

Via Metro:

For $3 to $5, Singletary and crew get neighborhood junkies to react on tape. “If we see a crackhead wilding, we just get them in their environment. … As long as you give them a little bit of money, they’re happy.” In most cases, Singletary and Greagory say, the addicts sign release forms. Access to junkies isn’t a problem. Singletary, who says he “kept getting locked up” for dealing crack, explains, “When you see a customer all the time, you start to have a little … bond with them.”

The only issue with the business plan we see is a potential copyright infringement — involving another Crackheads Gone Wild director.

Daryl Smith, 30, who started taping addicts in Atlanta two years ago, says his unaffiliated documentary, “Crackheads Gone Wild,” isn’t craxploitation — it’s entertainment. “If I called it ‘Drug Addicts in Atlanta,’ no one would want to watch that.”

The cracker, er, kicker? Smith says he has sold 60,000 copies of his $15 DVD; Singletary and Greagory 250 a week.
