Back Down Memory Lane with VIBE and Nas’ Brother JungleVIBE Magazine and Nas’ younger brother Jungle take you back to their Queensbridge Projects in Part 2 of their special feature celebrating Illmatic’s 20th anniversary.
In the second Edition of VIBE Magazine’s video tour with Nas’ brother Jungle, the two take viewers on a tour on the famous Queensbridge housing project that Nas and his brother grew up in during the time of Illmatic. After taking viewers back into the apartment where the young emcee grew up, VIBE and Jungle continue their tour of Queens, making stops in their neighborhood to significant places mentioned throughout Illmatic. Jungle revisits the tragic scene of where Nas’ childhood best friend, known as Ill Will, was murdered while re-telling the events of the fateful evening. The events of that evening would further motivate Nas to make it out of the hood and reach the levels of success that he has over the last two decades. They further the tour with a visit to the exact scenes where the video for “A Queens Story” was shot as well as the cover for his debut album, giving viewers a real life look at the album’s famous artwork.
Take a look at this exclusive tour and get insight on the makings and the legacy of one of Queensbridge’s most famous emcees.
Don’t believe there’s a racial element to the War on Drugs? As a former U.S. marshal and special agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency, Matthew Fog witnessed the astonishing inequity of the War on Drugs firsthand. This is his story.
this is one of my faves. I shall tweet it out so kwik can see. ok bye now :)
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like. He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it: Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.
EDIT: ONE MORE THING!! A critic asked who his current favorite actor is and his answer was Viola Davis…
This was YEARS before The Help.
Release in the US is limited and starts in theaters June 27, 2014. Radius-TWC is the company distributing the film.
Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Make peace with it and move on.
