January Mixtape (2017)

Finally got around to making a best of ’16 earlier today and two things i came to the realization is, 1) There’s is still plenty of good rap music being made, so all you grouchy-get-off-my-lawn peoples, please do the knowledge. And 2) I’m in DESPERATE need of an upgrade in my CDJ’s, like ASAP. Sucks when money’s tight though.

Adult Rappers (Video)

UPDATE 1/17: Yikes! It looks like the video’s been taken down. But you can catch the trailer below, which also gives you the option to rent or buy the film.

This documentary feature pulls back the curtain on the world of ‘working class’ rappers. The film spotlights independent artists struggling to find a balance between making a living and pursuing their art alongside the never-ending saga of age and relevance. Weaved together through a series of 30 plus interviews that are devoid of the ego so common in the business of music, especially hip-hop, the film traverses the country (USA) to explore the myths and misconceptions of life as a full-time rapper. Adult Rappers. A documentary stuck on the realness.
