Tired of being put in a box and relegated to making certain music and being viewed a certain way because of corporate stereotyping, artists are finally getting their views off their chests. 'Finally Sayin' What I Really Mean' is a feature length music documentary that, through conversations with various musical artists, poets, and social activists, explores the question of what good music is, and further discusses stepping outside of the industry's definition of what their music should be and how it should be represented. Over 30 signed and independent artists including Saul William s, Lalah Hathaway, Martin Luther, David Banner, Chamillionaire, and others, talk freely and openly about the music industry and how their music or image is stuffed in a box, packaged and sold. The documentary explores hip hop as a cultural voice, soul music as a movement and the art and creativity of poetry as the basis for it all. Written by
I was pleased to see the music industry peered at from the perspective of the musicians who dedicate their lives to their craft and sharing that with the world. It's not only those who have attained commercial success that understand the business. I definitely gave me another perspective while completely being entertained by the collective harmony of sounds and voices.... Especially here in the U.S., it is the urban underground that in most cases goes unnoticed if filmmakers continue to show us the unseen I think based on a new and larger pot to choose from, you will see more and more artists who love the craft as much as they enjoy the dollars, we will see a new movement of music for all people with different perspectives. To the Filmmaker Ms. Woods, keep doin your thing.
