With over 25 years of celebrating Houston-based rappers, actors, and entertainers, Wreckshop Films (Wreckshop Records), is back and excited to announce the release of The Dirty 3rd: Next Generation soundtrack and movie starring NAACP Nominated Actor-Clifton Powell, Wreckshop Records CEO-Derrick (D-Reck) Dixon, Comedian-Chico Bean, Houston-Based Rapper-Propain, and Actor-Dakarai Akil. The film and soundtrack is in collaboration with 8 Queens Film & Media Productions, 7 Kings Entertainment.
The Dirty 3rd: Next Generation stems from the original independent films shot in the early 2000’s starring Derrick (D-Reck) Dixon, Tyte Eyez, ESG, and Slim Thug. Next Generation reveals how the main character, “Street,” from the original film has finally stepped his game up and graduated from street-level hustling and completed his quest to become a legitimate businessman. A reality, which rewards him with a safe and peaceful lifestyle. New challenges and drama await him when his loved ones reemerge in his life. Close friend “Sonny Bobo” returns home from a long stint in prison and his estranged grandson “Zaire”, who unbeknownst to Street, is no longer a wide-eyed kid comes back as well.
Fans were given a sneak peek into The Dirty 3rd: Next Generation Soundtrack on October 14th, when the first single, “Gangsta” which features artists such as Propain, Slim Thug, OTB Fast Lane, and Boston George debuted. The soundtrack, which will be released on all platforms November 17th, also features music by Lil Keke, Sauce Walka, Z-Ro, David Banner, DJ XO, DJ Chose, Lil Flip, Big Pokey, Kirko Bangz, Killa Kyleon, Daryl “Dgotti” Monroe, Tyte Eyes, and many more.

Twenty years later, we are back and so excited to bring this classic not only to original fans of the Dirty 3rd franchise, but also to THE NEXT GENERATION!” – Derrick “Dreck” Dixon, Wreckshop Nation.
