Dame Dash and Kanye West are working together again.
The first installment of the digital seven-episode series premiered yesterday (February 26) via Complex.
Loisaidas appears to be a grimey, action street flick. It’s set to feature cameos by Smoke DZA, The Lox, Murda Mook and others.
Dash’s film company, Damon Dash Studios, is responsible for the production of the project. Dash co-wrote the script, directed the film and is credited as an executive producer alongside Kanye West.
On Instagram, he expressed his excitement over the film’s debut.
“Today is the day I walk it like I talk it,” he wrote via IG. “I put up my own money and invested in myself…my ability to direct as well as my ability to build the platform to present my art so no one can tell me what to do on any level so today I’m officially launching two things…my movie which I’m very proud off @loisaidas @damondashstudios.”
Dash also states that he’s developed his own version of Netflix that will feature all-original content. The movie streaming site he’s referring to is called Poppington Group Television b.k.a. PGTV.
Loisaidas will be released in an episodic format via this platform in addition to on its own site, loisaidasthemovie.com.

UPDATE: New York-based musical duo Loisaidas is suing Dame Dash and Kanye West over the movie Loisaidas, which the music group says tarnishes its brand, according to TMZ.
Founded in 2008, the Latin music group got its name for the slang for Lower East Side and singer Michael Medina says the murder, violence and drug sales depicted in the film have brought negative attention to the group.
Medina is seeking damages and for a judge to stop the release of the film.
