Amber and I met up with Max and John yesterday at the Jefferson Theater to check out Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme. It’s an hour-long documentary on the history of improvisational rap, tracing its origins and its impact on modern music. The audience really enjoyed it, and it was hard not to — the talent on display there was amazing. Mos Def and a couple of guys from Jurassic 5 were included in the film, which was cool, but it was the lesser-known talent that was really amazing. The Supernatural/Craig G battle was great to follow, and the soundtrack, put together by Cut Chemist, was perfect.
Fun, interesting, and enjoyable. Recommended.
