Freestyle: Art of Rhyme

Over ten years in the making, FREESTYLE: THE
ART OF RHYME makes its highly anticipated DVD
debut on May 24th, providing an explosive inside look into the creative framework of hip-hop culture and the improvisational art of freestyle where MC's
express themselves by creating rhymes in the
moment. Following some of hip-hop's biggest
luminaries, FREESTYLE explores the art form's
history, rules, legendary MC battles, taboos, social
impact, and the previously unexamined dimensions
of improvisational rapping as a spiritual and community-
based art form. The New York Times' A.O. Scott
hails FREESTYLE as "Joyful! Ferocious! A
celebration of the verbal artistry of hip-hop.
Arousing education in an art form that is too often
misunderstood" while Jami Bernard of The NY Daily
News writes, "The Hollywood version is "8 Mile" but
the real thing is this admiring documentary that
explores the phenomenon with spirit. It contains
footage that is as exciting as an Ali/Foreman fight."

They're no Amateurs...they're PROS


Bound by a love of music and a drive to produce sophisticated, spiritually minded Hip-Hop, The Procussions is a group of emcee-musicians who hail from Colorado. They formed in late 1990s when members of two rival b-boy crews decided to squash beef and make changes in the Colorado music scene. Five years later, they continue to pursue their mission of spreading life-affirming music and shattering Hip-Hip stereotypes. They know where they’re form, and always speak up for Colorado’s vibrant, multicultural music scene. “Colorado is where we’re from and Colorado is what we represent!”

The Pro’s took a little trip to Japan last month with the homie Othello his wonderful Hipknotics. The Hipknotics band backed up the whole show (on some live jazz type stuff), and The Pros and Othello took turns rocking the mic. Anyway, they took a gang of pictures and a lot of video... check out some of the memories that were made in the very great country of Japan.

Big Pooh of Little Brother

If you dont know who Rapper Pooh is... then you better ask your "Little Brother." Rapper Pooh of the popular trifecta, Little Brother releases a solo project titled "Sleepers". This project is typical of Little Brother, with chilled-out production, jazz samples of and down to earth lyrics. In the track, "Heart of the City," Big Pooh uses his music to tell stories of his life and talks about the struggles he experiences in his city. On "Now," Murs of Living Legends provides his distinct voice and lyrical skills to help convey the jealousy and envy that emerge as a result of being in the industry. Sleepers is a wake up call for society to wipe the crust from their eyes and recognize that no matter who you are struggles are part of life and that common element is what should bring us all together- well that's what I think... Big Pooh is the voice of all artists who live life by these 8 simple words: "love what you do, do what you love.." RECOMMENDED 8 out of 10 www.hallofjustus.com
