A piece of history and a business lesson
1 May 2013 | by mikechineaSee all my reviews

First of all I am not a big fan of Hip Hop, I don't care if it's Latino, Persian or what have you but I am a big fan of history and this doc painstakingly addresses the ups and down of the music business. You may have all the talent in the world but if you don't have the rudiments of business down pat you may be in for a big surprise when you find yourself on the street with zero in your pocket. This doc does an excellent job giving you the good, the bad and the ugly of the business. These young voices yell loud and clear what can happen if you don't play attention. It was great to see the Latin Hip-Hop underground and see firsthand how it all evolved. This is a must see for all interested in pursuing the music business. Raw, unapologetic and still having a bit of charming naiveté as the artists talk about their highs and lows. Respected by their peers and dismissed by the labels until the record companies found a way to exploit their talents. If you're into Latin Hip Hop or just dreaming about the music business then I suggest you take a look at this documentary it will do you a world of good. There is a lot more to the biz that just Pass The Mic!
