The Good Life...

"This Is The Life" hip-hop documentary will be airing on Showtime starting today and will run the entire month of April. 


In 1989, a collective of young artists gathered at a storefront health food cafe in South Central Los Angeles. Their mandate? To reject gang culture and expand the musical boundaries of hip hop. Directed by Ava DuVernay, THIS IS THE LIFE chronicles the little known story of "The Good Life" emcees, the alternative music movement they developed, and their worldwide influence on the artform. This film features Abstract Rude, Cut Chemist, Chali Tuna, Myka 9 and many more...
You can order the DVD and such here. This is an amazing movie for all people who love hip-hop. Just ordered my copy, y'all betta get yours! Peace.
