Player Hating: A Love Story focuses on Half-a-Mill who is a young hip hop artist from the Albany Housing Projects in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. By the time he was seven, Half was sharing a gun with his brother, ‘cause he was sick of adult men putting guns in his face and not being able to defend himself. Half’s been running with the same ten guys his whole life, and they’re his crew, but he’s the one with real musical talent. He’s the one that will take all of them all out of the projects.

2010 IndieFest USA International Film Festival
"Player Hating IS NOT just another hip-hop movie. Maggie gained unprecedented access and insight into the reality of 'thug life', and I believe that this is going to be THE DOCUMENT of a time and place in American life."
-Peter Sprier, Academy Award Nominated Filmmaker & CEO of Rugged Entertainment
"Player Hating: A Love Story is one of the premier documents of the Hip Hop Age, and as such deserves a large audience, because it humanely holds nothing back. Absolutely nothing."
-Dead Treadway, Filmicability
"This is what Player Hating does; it shocks you into submission, offering unprecedented, intimate insight into a world we often see (in the Wire and the like), but very rarely see. You don’t want to see it, but you certainly won’t be able to look away."
