Trailer: This Is The Life: How The West Was Won


This is an important documentary about the hip-hop scene that took place at the Good Life Cafe in the ’90s. Contrary to the straightened hair of DJ Quik and the gangsta rap of Ice Cube and Snoop, there was a hip-hop movement that managed to deal with displacement without waving guns. Medusa, Freestyle Fellowship, T-Love and Jurassic Five are a few of the artists that came out of the workshop ran by owner B.Hall and her son R.Cain Blaze. The film was released to DVD earlier this year and you can purchase it through iTunes.
