True Story with Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes in the lead roles has a soundtrack full of songs that the audience would like to sing along to. Here you can find each one.
True story Starring Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes, one of Netflix’s latest TV series with a soundtrack is packed with well-known artists, including 2Pac and Marvin Gaye. Kevin Hart portrays a fictional version of himself – a stand-up comedian named Kid – who is in a seemingly uncontrollable download spiral with his brother Carlton, played by Blades Westley Snipes. The show is a classic example of how the main characters are constantly working to clean up their mess, only to get it much, much worse in the process.
Kevin Hart is primarily known for his comic roles. This new seven-episode drama reached number one on Netflix after its release, proving to a large extent that Hart is more than a comedian. Like his character, Kevin Hart began his career as a stand-up comedian born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Today, Kevin is still known for his stand-up career, but it is almost impossible not to associate him with his many acting roles.
IN True story, Hart and Snipes’ characters have a complicated story with each other. Carlton throws a wrench at his brother’s sobriety, and Kid wakes up the next morning lying next to a dead woman. Carlton immediately hires a “fixer” to help solve their problem, but things obviously don’t go as planned. While the show itself focuses on an American celebrity in the process of having his whole life ruined, the audience can not help but sing along to True story‘s soundtrack.
