Hip-Hop Dawn : The Rise of Hip-Hop in the Midlands-Documentary

Nick Light sais:

Hip Hop Dawn is about Martin Jones, a man who almost single handedly documented the rise of Hip Hop in the Midlands in the 1980s, and later went on to manage Goldie.

The documentary is about his hidden archive of photographs and video footage from the mid 80s captured while he was a social worker, where he inadvertently documented the birth of hip-hop in the midlands through his work, and the rise of some of the UKs future stars, such as Goldie and Robert Del Naja.

Cam’ron-Giles Investigation (Ep. 1) *Video

Premiered by: FADER

FADER sais:

In episode 1, which was filmed in 2007, Cam meets up with a guy who goes by the name of Faceman. Face was a relatively successful comedian who had performed on Def Comedy Jam and BET’s ComicView, and was a perplexing customer for Cam. “Face was just such a big celebrity where we came from, we couldn’t understand why he was getting high,” he told The FADER over the phone.

And so, for $30, Face lets Cam trail him for a couple of hours: on a crosstown errand and then back to Face’s apartment, where he shows off his girlfriend and his pipe much to Cam’s dismay. “It’s all fun and games when we talk about it, but to actually see him smoke crack makes me sad,” he says. The episode closes with Face performing break dance moves that earn him an extra few bucks but leave Cam in tears.
