Painter and writer Justin Bua – known for his hip-hop styled portraiture and work with EA Games – makes his directorial debut this weekend with the premier of DMC: Walk This Way.

From the official release –

World renown artist and author Justin BUA is proud to announce his directorial debut of Walk this Way, the   untold story of one of music’s greatest legends Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels. As one of three founding members of the iconic group–RUN DMC–DMC brought rap to the mainstream of American culture, only to be left behind as hip-hop exploded and became one of the most significant cultural movements of our generation. Featuring Ice-T, Eminem, MC Lyte, Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz, Mix Master Mike, Z-Trip and many more, BUA paints a picture and chronicles DMC’s battle–and ultimate   triumph–over his addiction to alcohol, the loss of his voice, and  ultimately, the reclaiming of his identity.

Walk this Way premieres Sunday July 10, 10 pm EST on Ovation.
