“The DocWumentary…”

Posted by Oak Jones on August 20, 2010

Documentaries are very common in this day and age. Good documentaries however, are very hard to come by. Ever since the Wu-Tang Clan‘s rise to national fame in ’94; dozens of video footage that chronicled the group has emerged… some good, some bad. The clip above is a trailer from the upcoming Wu-Tang documentary, and the fact that the group’s own GZA produced it makes it significant from the others. Supposedly set for release in early 2000, some legal setbacks prevented it from seeing the light of day for about a decade.

I’m looking forward to seeing your favorite group’s favorit group from the viewpoint of someone on the inside looking out. Look out for brief narratives from Method Man, the RZA and Ghostface Killah among others. Oh, congratulations to The Chef for finalizing that collaboration with Kanye West and Justin Beiber.

Movie Trailer: “Just Another Day” Feat. Wood Harris & Ja Rule

Posted by T. Adeyemi on January 21, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Just Another Day, the latest Valencia Community College co-production, is a day-in-the-life hip hop drama about a rising young rap star (Jamie Hector of TV’s The Wire) and a veteran rapper trying to hang on to the top (Wood Harris, also of The Wire) as they go through “everything a rap artist goes through in a day,” says Oscar-nominated director Peter Spirer (Rhyme & Reason). The drama is set in Miami, but downtown Orlando has been the location, with filming in the Parramore neighborhood, the H2O church (formerly the club 8 Seconds) and the Drop Shop record store. Rappers such as Ja Rule, Trick Daddy, Young Dre, Petey Pablo, Little Scrappy and Big Daddy Kane will make appearances in the film, which Spirer wrote. – Orlando Sentinel
