I went to a Block Party last night...
Hubby and I saw this movie last night. It was awesome... but wait... it won't be awesome to you unless you love conscious hip-hop. This block party had the likes of Erykah Badu, Dead Prez, Jill Scott, Kayne West, The Roots, Talib Kwali, Mos Def, Fugees and Lauryn Hill... to name a few. This movie was like a concert/documentary. Erykah Badu (one of my favs) was awesome, she was performing on stage and a big wind caught her and blew her humongous afro wig off! But she kept singing! Kayne and Common performed... Black Star... Dave even had a marching band perform too. His behind the scene antics were hilarious. The coolest thing is that the performers were all political/conscious black rappers/singer. And I loved that! They all made statements, some understated and some overstated. Hubby and I were singing the songs we knew in the theatre out loud along with the movie! Thank goodness there were not many people in there with us. All and all I say go see this if you like any of the artists I mentioned above. Do not go to this movie expecting to see Dave Chappelle do characters from his old show. This is about music, laughs and positive message.
