Saturday Matinee – “Rhyme & Reason”

11.03.12 5 years ago 8 Comments

Pop some popcorn or, like me, pour yourself a Craig-from-Friday sized bowl of sugary cereal, and watch the 1997 documentary Rhyme & Reason. The film mostly consists of interviews, and some performance footage, of over 80 Hip-Hop artists from underground acts like The Pharcyde and Tha Alkaholiks, to the biggest names of the day (The Notorious B.I.G., Puffy, Wu-Tang Clan).

Especially worth the watch are scenes of the late Heavy D showing love to his Mount Vernon, NY community, and one Ice-T breaking down hip-hop history in ways that still resonate today.
