Rubble Kings – The story of NYC’s 1970s gang subculture and how it influenced the cultural phenomenon that is hip hop.
Friend to our blog Chad Harper of Hip Hop Saves Lives, brought to our attention a new documentary Rubble Kings. An important documentary about courage, hope and survival against all odds. This movie is pretty much finished. Unfortunately it can not be shown beyond festivals or private screenings because of music rights and archival footage that must be cleared. Being able to pay for the songs and footage in this film is crucial to telling this story accurately and in its truest form. It is almost there but just needs a little help in order to keep this film authentic and how the public deserves to see it in its true art form. Chad says “Put your money where your mouth is all you hip hop heads, if you are tired of this crap being force fed to our youth then lets make a difference.”
RUBBLE KINGS is a story of survival, hope and empowerment that resonates with audiences from all backgrounds and walks of life. It’s a testament to the influential power of a group of individuals and their ability to inspire a global movement.

We heard online that Kate Winslet was going to be in Harlem June 1 filming scenes for HBO’s Mildred Pierce…and turns out she was in Harlem! We also found out that Evan Rachel Wood was in Harlem yesterday as well. They were both in the Mount Morris Historic District, which is located between 120th to 124th Street from Lenox Avenue to Madison Avenue .
In my view, perfect location to capture some gorgeous brownstones for the background shots for Mildred Pierce. I will definitely be watching Kate and Evan Rachel on HBO when the film comes out. In the mean time, check out the photos of Kate and Evan Rachel in Harlem! Cool!

I believe we can all agree there are a lot of video parodies and spinoffs out in cyberspace about popular TV shows or films, and some of those ideas take off and become contagious-if they are presented in a timely and creative manner. Here is one video trailer that embodies Continue reading
