DOCUMENTARY: LIGHT SKIN VS DARK SKIN

This Light Skin vs Dark Skin vehicle is pointless and who are those idiots ‘hamming’ it up for the camera? What was the brief from the director/producer – ‘We want to cause a stir, so say some controversial s**t, because we desperately want this documentary to be a talking point within the community’. Whatever….   The light skin / dark skin ‘debate’ is BORING!  MOVE ON!!!!

VIDEO: DAMON DASH VS DEF JAM (2003)

This footage is taken from the newly released Documentary DVD ‘Choke No Joke’ . Watch Bruk Pocket chew out Def Jam staff (lol). But you know what kills me the most.. none of the staff sitting around the table tries to defend themselves…..

‘THIS IS JIM JONES’ DOCUMENTARY PREVIEW – JAY-Z VS DAMON DASH

Interesting……… Poor old Brukkers Dash. He still hasn’t gotten over the Roc-A-Fella split. And look at former Roc-A-Fella part owner Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke [mark: 2.49].  When they were riding high on a crest of a wave he refused to speak/grant interviews.  But since being shoved in to obscurity he has suddenly found his voice. I had the misfortune of meeting Kareem once. WHAT a dick head! The man behaved and walked around as if his s**t didn’t stink! Anyway,  Dash is the ‘brains’ behind this documentary. But from what I hear it isn’t really about []

The documentary also included footage of DMX, Ja Rule, Irv Gotti, Method Man and Red Man and a behind the scenes look at what went in to organising the tour. One of my favourite scenes from the documentary involves ole Bruk Pocket (Damon Dash) and the then President of Def Jam Records Kevin Liles. Bruk Pocket rants []
