Great documentary This is one of the best hip-hop documentaries I’ve seen, both in the range of artists it interviews and the information it gives to you.It’s kind of like a companion to the book which came out a few years ago, where they got hold of around 100 MCs (many of the same people in this documentary + more), this is the one I mean -…so this documentary is like additional knowledge to go along with that book, and obviously you get to see some nice freestyles and everything on the screen with this.It’s great that people are finally documenting the actual CRAFT of MCing, rather than either trying to attack it in some way without knowing anything about it, or just talking “around” the art form, by focusing on stuff like the socio-political background… that stuff is important, but not at the expense of a thorough discussion and…

I guess he just forgot, he’s pretty far removed.Doug E Fresh looks exactly the same, and beat boxing like he’s still in his prime, and ‘Ye killed his spot, caught fire, that…
