Film Recommendation of the Week...

The Show
Release date August 20, 1995.
Running time 1 hour 33 minutes.

Here is a movie description from

"This documentary offers viewers an in depth look at the world of hip-hop and rap music as it chronicles a diverse group of performers preparing to give a major concert at Philadelphia's Armory. Interspersed amongst the preparations are interviews with rappers past and present, looks at their personal lives, commentary on their significance and upon the music, and plenty of concert footage. Featured acts and performers include, Slick Rick, who has been imprisoned for second-degree murder; Snoop Doggy Dog and Tha Dogg Pound, Russell Simmons, Dr. Dre, B.I.G; Melle Mel, LL Cool J, Run-DMC, Da 5 Footaz, YNN and more."

Very interesting look at some talented cats that very often get dismissed as just thugs and criminals. Some of them can actually rap as well. Don't miss the opportunity to peep The Notorious B.I.G. doing his thing onstage. When I first saw the film I wondered who was that other guy rapping with him onstage-it's Sean "P. Diddy" Combs.
