POSE TON GUN (translated into English as PUT DOWN DA GUN) was composed and performed by SUPREME NTM, a prestigious French hip hop band formed in 1989 in Seine-Saint-Denis (Paris suburbs) by JOEY STARR and KOOL SHEN. This track was a huge hit in the late 1990s. The honor is all the greater for me to have paid tribute to their talent through BLUE QUEEN. Big thanks to these major artists and their record label (SONY MUSIC) for making such a courtesy donation to the film's soundtrack!
