Pras Michel, of The Fugees, has a documentary about LA’s Skid Row coming out from Screen Media Films on August 24th. Michel spent 9 days living on the streets (albeit with a hidden camera).
He told Variety about the experience:
How much would you make in a day?
The first day, I got lucky. I made $32 in about four hours. The next day, I made $7 in five hours. It was raining, so people were reluctant to turn down their windows.
Maybe he ran into Officer Deon Joseph, who posts about Skid Row.
