Destined for Greatness
24 March 2005 | by (Newark, NJ) – See all my reviews

This series is destined for greatness. I thought the mix of urban culture and politics was just enough. Reminds me of the Source Magazine back in the day, before they messed-up. But this is even better because it's a new way to deliver the 'Factz, Flava, and Flo' as the DVD says. The only problem I had with it, to be honest, was the length of the segments; they were too short. Just as I would get into it -- it would be over. Maybe that is a suspense tactic to get us hype for #2. If it is, it's working, a little too good. I really liked the combination of artists, not just one kind, but all types from lox to mos def to visual artist and writers. Very hot indeed, I agree with the other reviewer. On top of that, I have a feeling that this will be a mainstay and that one day #1 will be in the collection of every hip-hop collector. It's art, rhyme, and reason. Fresh for 05..,
