Hip Hop Movies/brooklyn Babylon
has anyone else seen this movie?
it's crazy dope
stars blackthought and some fine jewish bitch
ill plot/storyline mixed in with great music
what are some other good hip hop movies?
how about, duh, WILD STYLE!!! still the greatest hip hop film ever made.
Juice (sort of)
Def Jam Backstage Pass (never saw this)
Up in Smoke Tour (good shit)
Murder was the Case (raw as hell)
Jay-Z's Streets is Watching (an utter piece of shit)
RZA's Domestic Violence (fucking terrible. anyone want my copy? nah, i'll get $50 from some idiot on ebay for it)
there are more that i can't think of right now.
the only place i know showing brooklyn babylon is BAM (brooklyn academy of music).
this movie is done by mark levin, the guy that brought you slam. here's my simplistic list of hip-hop films (current):
brooklyn babylon - might suck, see slam
slam - bad acting, no script,
but saul williams is not
no one knows my
name - great documentary about
women in underground hip- hop.
jails, hospitals &
hip-hop danny hoch - excellent.
white boys also done by mark levin,
which is not positive.
but stars danny hoch as
iowa homeboy with plans
to score coke in chi-town
funny moments, great
ghost dog not really a hip-hop film
by forrest whittaker is
a martial arts hitman w/
( and cameo).
black and white offensive james toback
film w/allan houston,
mike tyson. worth seeing
to just marvel at how
hollywood wants to be
down and manages to
life and debt not really a hip-hop film
so much as a documentary
on a topic we should be
educated about - the
subtle slavery of world
bank lending - in this
film, to jamaica.
more if i can think of them.
Where can I see Brooklyn babylon?
They even used an old ugly duckling track.
Listening to rasco,
I went to see boiler room with a friend and was surprised that the score of the film was strictly hip hop. Especially since they used songs from cats like De La Soul and Pharoahe Monch. No mainstream hip pop was used.
Boilerroom. At least the soundtrack.
Listening to the rza,
