So the word is out (thanks OKP, On Smash, Nah Right and to the trailer too- it is quite a teaser). Video Rahim and I have been frolaborating on this documentary on Talib Kweli for sometime now (98-05) and because of some red tape, the doc has not been completed as of yet. So after 10 years of working on it, we decided to at least release the trailer for all the fans to see and – who knows – maybe add some pressure to the powers that be to help make this doc a reality for Kwe’s fans and fans of Hip Hop Docs. We shot over 200 hours of footage over them 10 years, including classic RE shows to Black Stars first performance in Atlanta… to me touring with Kweli on the Beasties tour and with him and Kanye West overseas.

So lets see what you the fans can do to help make this film see the light of day on your DVD player and not just on youtube!

Also check our reel (Nonstop MovieWorks aka “the Culture Capture Champs”) for some more classic spitage from MF DOOM, Jay Z, Oukast and more…

    Giving respect where respect is due… can we do that? Can we admit to ourselves that not many remember what it’s like to make an art of another’s creation? Can we “stay widdit” when times tell us that we have no logical reason to do so? Can we keep what’s not ready… for the world to see… to ourselves… until the right time comes? …MAN… …how many of us can say we were Kweli fans through thick and thin?

    To see all of these blog-spots, forums & online magazines stand up at once, for the same MC they’ve shared their equal dislikes at times for… clearly proves the contradictory that lives in our world. Yall really don’t know who you’re rollin with… so it’s only right that you let the real ones do what they do best. Be a fan or be a behind-the-scenes-man… this joint will see the day of light when it’s supposed to. For all those who are just now gittin on-board, welcome to the game… for the loyalists out there… stay committed!
