They share their approach to live performances and how they put together a demo tape, got signed and dealt with labels as well as their hard-won behind-the-scenes knowledge about how the industry really works.

Fantastic a must see
31 January 2007 | by cblockSee all my reviews

After watching this film I am left wondering why this film isn't getting more attention? This film breaks down the art of the rhyme better then anything I've seen out there. What's really scary is that a film so positive in it's messages and meaning could be so ignored. Yeah, I know it's not Beef but come on, this is a great film. Great insights and interviews, Methods narration is funny and insightful, and it's entertaining as hell! Can't we support something positive? You're missing out if you don't peep this title. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to MC, let me re-phrase that, It's a must for anyone who wants to MC. After watching it inspired me to put down some hot 16's.
