True Hip-Hop Stories



THE JUICE CREW - SYMPHONY

Originally best known for his role in Boogie Down Productions with KRS-One in the late 80s, D-Nice has gone on to be one of the best multi-media hip-hop historians of our time. His new hip-hop documentary project True Hip-Hop Stories is hands down his best project to date. These vivdly filmed and well-scored short films are homages to the unique moments that shaped early hip-hop.



LORDS OF THE UNDERGROUND - FUNKY CHILD

Two films on Masta Ace and Lords of the Underground have been released thus far, both of which chronicle the behind-the-scenes "making of" stories you would never get to hear otherwise. Plus there are some quotables like: "There's no one making Adult Contemporary Hip-Hop anymore...or as I put it, ACHH." I'm feeling that term...forget using the word "underground", Im going with ACHH from now on.


Stay up to date on D-Nice's photography and new True Hip-Hop Stories documentaries over at his blog.

Yeah, now it's working. Weird, or I was just being really thick for a moment. Nice clip, too.

What's the latest on ace, anyway? Last thing I heard was him on the eMC album, but no solo ish coming up? Anyone?
