In 2016, we met up with Memphis rapper/singer/songwriter Jon Waltz at The High Line, an elevated park on a defunct rail line running through the west side of Manhattan. We were working on a short documentary, and we spent at least two hours walking, talking, and shooting video of Waltz on a cold but clear day in New York City. He was reserved and soft-spoken, but sounded optimistic. That year "Riot" dropped and positioned Waltz for a breakthrough moment. He had big plans, industry attention, and a clear path to a promising career in music. We wrapped the shoot and agreed to meet up again for a second interview in a new location, but it never happened. The footage never came out.
