Movies To Check For: A Tribe Called Quest Documentary Trailer + ATL Screening Info

There has been a LOT of controversy over this new A Tribe Called Quest documentary / movie. Originally in the trailer it was said to be titled “Beats, Rhymes, and Fights,” but now all the press has it being titled “Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Story Of A Tribe Called Quest.”

There has been SO much going on in fact, that when the trailer was originally uploaded via You Tube it was removed only a few days after. It just resurfaced recently so I’m finally getting a chance to post it.

Jimmy V from the TSS fam recently caught the movie at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC and reviewed it for The Source.

Here is the official trailer for your viewing pleasure. OH and two more things.

1. This movie was funded/directed by actor Michael Rappaport
2. The ATL will be able to see this movie on July 22nd when it hits theaters. The movie is said to be screening in two locations (Midtown Arts Cinema and Phipps Plaza AMC).

Video: Ludacris Speaks To Myspace About New Movie Fast Five

This past Tuesday I bumped into the homie Luda and 4-Ize to catch up on some NBA Playoff action. He was just coming from the ATL premier of his new movie Fast And The Furious “Fast Five.” Gotta salute the big homie for coming out as an emcee and stepping his acting game up over the years. Check out this interview I caught on Myspace Music.

In 2001, when Christopher Bridges, aka multi-platinum-selling rapper Ludacris, starred as Tej Parker, an ex-street racer and race host in “2 Fast 2 Furious,” it marked a particularly integral moment in the MC’s career. Aside from a small role earlier that year in “The Wash,” “The Fast and the Furious” sequel marked Luda’s first true foray into the world of acting. Now, a decade later, with a return role in the fifth edition of the car-centric action film, “Fast Five,” not to mention over 15 films to his name — including Academy Award winning films such as “Crash” — the Atlanta native is busy balancing his simultaneously hectic music and acting careers. Which, as the 33-year-old rapper recently explained while in Rio De Janiero– the world-famous Ipanema beach serving as his backdrop– wasn’t easy to make happen. “You have your work cut out for you,” Ludacris says of the barriers musicians must battle in order to break into acting. “There’s a lot of stereotypes out there.”
In our exclusive chat with Ludacris, the rapper/actor dishes on the acting peers he admires (“The list goes on and on”), how female MCs are near and dear (“There’s a large place for female MCs in the industry”) and what’s next on his never-ending list of projects.
Check out our exclusive interview with Ludacris below.

Fresh Produce: Frank 151 “F” Mets New Era

Check out the new “F” Mets New Era from Frank 151. And that’s “F” as in Frank Mets New Era not like “F the Mets” cause that would down right disrespectful and subject to a severe beat down.

Anyway, here’s the skinny…


“Good role models are hard to come by, now more than ever. We had to travel back over two centuries to find someone who truly embodied the Frank151 spirit. As an inventor, publisher, diplomat and ‘man about town,’ Benjamin Franklin was the quintessential jack-of-all-trades, and the ideal spokesman for a company that has remained a pioneering force since its inception.

The Frank ‘F’ logo is minimal but powerful, paying homage to Ben Franklin the writer and printer. Set in a classic serif font, the logo could have been peeled directly from the pages of Poor Richard’s Almanack. The ‘F’ logo is often accompanied by a Franklin apothegm to live by: ‘If you would not be forgotten, As soon as you are dead and rotten, Either write things worth reading, Or do things worth the writing.’

Royal blue wool cap with orange 3D embroidered ‘F,’ tonal rear Frank151 logo, silver scripted quote on green under-visor.”



Ummmmm Yeah, sooooooo I need one of these ASAP!!! Szie 7 1/2. Catch yours at Reed Space now.


VIDEO: Senor Kaos – Most Interesting MC In The World Release Party Footage

On Wednesday, March 2 I celebrated the official release for my new project “The Most Interesting MC In The World” at 529 EAV in Atlanta, GA. Special invited guests Boog Brown, Clan Destined, 4-IZE, Dillon, Binkis Recs and DJ Deliver joined me to make the festivities an extravaganza.

So… here it is, check it out. And you haven’t purchased the new project yet, what are you waiting for??? Make sure you hit to get your digital copy today.



Video: DJ Jaycee Cutting It Up At Georgia State University

A few weeks ago I assisted the homie 4-Ize during his performance opening for Ludacris at Georgia State University (GSU). During Luda’s set the homie DJ Jaycee got a chance to show the crowd his turntable mechanics. Jaycee is a true battle tested DJ. He’s also put out countless of themed mixtapes over the years, and those of you who live in Atlanta get to hear his mixes daily on V-103 FM at noon.

Like Luda says “Ain’t nobody fucking with my DJ” – That’s Real Talk!

Red Bull Music Academy Radio: Fireside Chat with GURU

One year ago today we lost Keith Elam bka GURU of Gangstarr. In the year since he’s passed there’s a still a lot of mystery surrounding his death, and questions that have yet to be answered. We may never know what really happened. However what we do know is that GURU left us albums and albums of material to digest, dance, or nod our heads too.

In celebration of Guru’s life I wanted to post this rare interview with him speaking on the origins of Gangstarr, why he left Boston for Brooklyn, etc.


(I snapped this picture of Guru at the Gangstarr concert in Atlanta Circa Summer 1999).


Arguably one of the most distinctive and important voices in the history of hip hop, Guru (Gifted Universal Rhymes Unlimited) is of course best known as the ‘lyrical’ half of the legendary Gang Starr. After the first three Gang Starr albums, Guru launched his solo career with the Jazzmatazz project, which saw him collaborate with the jazz artists that Hip-Hop had previously only sampled. As well as legends like Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd and Bob James, Jazzmatazz 1 and 2 also saw Guru work with Acid Jazz contemporaries such as The Brand New Heavies, which helped this groundbreaking collaborative project reach a huge audience across several different markets.
