I would have loved to have been involved in a project like this, simply because minor things such as this trailer I would probably completely disagree with and argue.  I think the days of shopping tapes/albums out of your trunk and backpack have LONG gone.  While I agree footwork and grassroots hustling is a huge part of the come up, I also believe that an integral part of getting discovered is choosing where you're actually sharing your music.  Being somewhere at the "right time and the right place" are so unbelievably important in this age that walking the streets shopping your demo like that is pretty much obsolete and 90% of the time a waste of time and money.

But screw getting "discovered" anyway, I hope this documentary is going to be about how an artist can build on their own without having to garner investments for some gargantuan marketing plan.  If Antoine Dodson can do it without talent, you should be able to make with it.

Nigel Sylvester is probably one of the illest BMX riders of our/your generation right now.   Here's some pretty incredible footage put together by the prolific 13th Witness following Nigel all around New York City streets, bridges, sidewalks, benches, curbs, crosswalks and patios.

Good to see Nigel getting some cake off of Gatorade, hot off the "Because I Grind Tour", they've dropped this mini-series "Nigel Sylvester and Gatorade Go All Day"

You've seen how Nigel Sylvester's day ended; now see how it began. The second video in Nigel's Go All Day series goes back in time to show how the day started like any other day: rise and shine, then out the door to hit up his favorite city spots with friends.

This unique three part video series was conceptualized and written by Nigel and Glenn PP Milligan, with support from Gatorade. Shout out to Nigel's brother Adrian Sylvester, as well as two young NYC riders Ikeem and Jose for their appearances in the video. Music provided by Donnis.

I’ve been following the IC’s since BODEGA, still one of my favorite doc’s they’ve done to date.  Strapped with what appears to be a new camera, they’ve put together a pretty eye-opening documentary about taxpayer money being spent on stadiums that aren’t putting any of the money back into the economy.

Man I never saw the original.  It always looked extremely boring to me.  But I have to admit this new trailer has me wanting to go back, watch the original, then go see this.  Nicely done Mr. Film Studio exec.

Wu-Tang Saga is the ultimate documentary spanning over the last 2 years of the Wu-Tang Clan and over 9 Wu-Tang Clan concerts including the last 2 times, perhaps the last times, the whole Clan performed live together along with the infamous 8 Diagram \our where the Shaolin Emcees rebelled against The Abbott (RZA) and went on tour without the RZA. Also includes a tour of Staten Island, exclusive freestyles, album photoshoots, a look inside the Wu-Tang tour buses, Wu-Tang 5% philosophies, album in-store signings and more. For once you will experience what is like to be part of the Clan. Narrated exclusively by the Clan themselves (unlike the BET documentary this film isn’t filled with random a&r’s or street guys talking about the clan), this film stars Cappadonna, Raekwon, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Rza, Gza, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, U-God, Papa Wu, True Master, Prodigal Sunn, Allah Mathematics, 12 O’ Clock, Chi King, Slick Rick and more. This film is over 2 hours and the DVD version also includes over a hour of bonus features including extended interviews, bonus performances, music videos and much more….Ships out February 25th.

100 Quotes from HBO's The Wire created by the folks over at Pajiba and TSS with the assist.  Worth every bit of spare 10 minutes you have available today.   I miss that show. Nobody will ever be able to make a crime drama in the hood like they did.  "Nice Dolphin."

Thanks D!

I'm not sure if it's because I appreciate Nigel's talent or if I'm just simply addicted to the amazing shots by 13th Witness , but man I've watched this video three times and it doesn't seem to be getting old.  Well put together, beautifully shot and Nigel is without a doubt a talented kid on the bike.   I'm quickly becoming a fan of both of these cats.

Being that we are supremely huge advocates of the indie movement, not only in hip-hop but in many other creative aspects (which you will be seeing soon enough), I feel that we have done fellow fans of the indie movement a disservice by not giving Rik Cordero's upcoming film "Inside a Change" enough coverage.  Coming off of a laundry list of great hip-hop videos, I'm sure Three21Media will definitely deliver something great with this debut film they've put together.

But don't let me waste your time with my opinion, thoughts and ideas about this film.  Check out this interview with director/writer Rik Cordero on Shade45 with Lord Sear.  And check out the official trailer below.

Personally, I haven't seen the movie (we're not important enough to get pre-screeners lol) but from the trailer, it looks like it's something pretty special and I hope I get the oppotunity to enjoy the film at some point.

Check out the interview we had with Rik Cordero back on Episode #62 of the show.
