"Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes"

Watch it tonight if you get WETA (ch. 26) @ 11PM. MPT apparently thinks that this show won't get enough ratings for them to justify playing it in prime time (MPT cares about ratings? lol).*

While I think that this movie could have benefitted from some more independent voices in hip-hop (ie, those making hip-hop outside of the world of mainstream radio/record labels, including some extremely talented Baltimore Club producers), I am looking forward to seeing it.

*The scheduling (11pm?)/lack of promotion of this documentary is a perfect example of how shoddily run PBS really is. I am sure the massive funding cuts aren't helping.
