just watched this on cable the other day....
This is the Life video and this clearly is one of the best hip hop documentaries that I've ever seen(along with 'Style Wars'). This is the Life film I love all the rare footage of Freestyle Fellowship, Abstract Rude, Ellah Khule, Gangah K, Figures Of Speech, Volume 10, Riddlore... and the list goes on and on. This is the Life review I especially enjoyed the segment about Mikah 9, he truly is one of the greatest to ever live and has a style that noone can touch. This is the Life DVD for sale This DVD has it all, a history about the Good Life cafe, interviews with the emcees who performed at the Good Life, but the RARE footage is the draw for me. This is the Life movie I'm definitely going to be buying this DVD after what I just watched.

This is the Life DVD Features



In 1989, a collective of young artists gathered weekly at a small health food store in South Central LA called "The Good Life. Their mandate? To explore and expand the musical boundaries of hip hop. THIS IS THE LIFE tells the little known story of a group of teenagers, who revolutionized hip hop by innovating the very rhyme patterns, melodic concepts and lyrical styles used by many of today's biggest rap stars. While their innovations have yielded billions of dollars for the recording industry, the Good Life emcees have toiled in relative obscurity in the United States. But much like their jazz heroes of a bygone era, these street poets have garnered a rabid and musically sophisticated fan base abroad, with a cult-like following in Germany, Australia, France, England and Japan. This feature-length documentary, directed by former Good Life emcee Ava DuVernay, chronicles the rise and fall of an unusual family of artists, while examining their obstacles to commercial success. They all took different paths, but remain connected by the music they made, the alternative hip hop movement they developed, and their worldwide influence on the art form. Source: Passion River
