Enjoyed
10 June 2009 | by (london, uk) – See all my reviews

I liked this. I first watched Freestyle: Art of Rhyme, which is a similar hiphop documentary focusing on the creative process of freestyle and then I stumbled upon this, so I thought I'd check it out.

I enjoyed the soundtrack, which introduced me to a few new artists that I'd never heard. It had some nice footage from the artists that it names and it gives insight into the spiritual/creative essence of hip hop and the love and artistry involved in creating it. Overall, this was a good documentary, down to earth and real. I'd recommend Freestyle- Art of Rhyme, which has some more good footage.

I haven't rated this but I thought it was a genuine piece of work. It endeavours to get close to the heart of hiphop and rhyme and I respected and appreciated that.
