Michigan the Hollywood of the Midwest?

By Sue White | The Saginaw News | Saturday August 23, 2008

Is it the weather? No, filmmakers are coming to Michigan to get a big tax break with hopes of starting a Hollywood Midwest.

Prozak didn't film his $125,000 music video last spring at Saginaw's Temple Theatre and former Moose Lodge because Michigan offered him a 42 percent tax incentive.

"It was before they started giving money back," said the horror-core rapper from Saginaw. He is playing to sold-out audiences around the country, including The Fillmore in Detroit at 6 p.m. today, as his new album, "Tales from the Sick," climbs the Billboard charts.
