Director: Coodie and Chike
From directors Chike and Coodie, the pair that recently directed the video for Joey Bada$$'s "Unorthodox," comes this entry in ESPN's 30 for 30 series. Benji is about the life and death of Ben Wilson, a resident of Chicago's South Side. In 1984, his senior year of high school and the year of his murder, he was regarded as the best basketball prospect in the country. And then he was shot to death during an altercation near his school, the Simeon Career Academy. Chike and Coodie's film documents the aftermath of the shooting, leaving the viewer gut-punched and bleary-eyed.
