Default Re: HIP HOP

A few great documentaries to watch for you real fans.

Scratch -
One of the quintessential docs about hip hop in my opinion. You see a lot of old school hip hop history with the likes of Bamabaataa and others.

Beat Diggin -
This'll flat out just make you appreciate vinyl records again. Now these cats LISTEN to music.

Good Copy, Bad Copy -
It's more about piracy, but it has a large and really good segment with Danger Mouse (of Gnarls Barkley) who did a mash-up mixtape of Jay Z's Black Album and The Beatles White Album, and ultimately got in a lot of trouble even though he intentionally made no money from it. It kind of tackles the issue of sampling.
