Summary

Summary

The underground hip-hop movement steps into the light as filmmakers explore the personalities, culture, and careers of a wide spectrum of talented artists from the strange exploits of Kool Keith to the treacherous world of Harlem emcee Immortal Technique. From insight into the careers of such individual artists as Saul Williams, Aesop Rock, and Poison Pen to a revealing peek at the history of New York City's "mixtape" tradition with DJ Silva Sir-Fa, a lesson in independent label management from KutMasta Kurt, and a thoughtful reflection on the state of the rap industry from Pee Wee Kirkland, this release offers a truly insightful look at one of the most popular emerging music genres around. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
