This Is The Life...

If y'all never heard about this, then what the hell you been watchin and listenin to? This Is The Life is the story of "The Good Life" emcees...and "is a feature-length documentary that chronicles...the alternative music movement they developed, and their worldwide influence on the artform". Benny was fortunate enough to see this film as part of the Langston Hughes African-American film festival in Seattle. This film was directed by Ava DuVernay, who also happens to be a "Good Life" emcee, and features music, interviews, and vintage footage from The Good Life. You can read more about it here. If you got love for hip hop music, then you gotta see this film.
