Rich The Kid is the subject of a new Noisey documentary called Rich The Kid Is Rich Forever. In the 8-minute day-in-the-life clip, Rich meets up with a fan at Venice Beach to prove he’s not just one of those rappers who rocks skate gear and doesn’t live the lifestyle, stops by a Migos video shoot and finally ends the day with a performance in LA.

Watch Common’s Lovestar Documentary

Monday, September 12th, 2016


In this companion piece to his new single “Lovestar”, Common and an all female panel explore and expound upon the notion of Black Love and the Black Women at the heart of that connection. Premiered today via Essence, Common explains that the short film and single are his way of paying the homage he feels is long overdue: “So, the theme, Love Star, came up just because I thought it was a cool nickname to call somebody that you’re close to. You know how people say, ‘oh, that’s my bae’ or my ‘boo’ or ‘my girl,’ like we used to say. Love Star is like a beautiful way of describing somebody important in your life that you care about.”

De La Soul Is Not Dead (Documentary)

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Here’s a great way to spend 30 minutes on a Thursday afternoon. The new De La Soul Is Not Dead documentary from Mass Appeal features commentary from Prince Paul, Dante Ross, Monica Lynch of Tommy Boy and of course Dave, Posdonous and Maseo, and it takes a look at how three outcasts from Amityville, Long Island emerged as a legendary Rap trio.

The principal players discuss how Paul, who had music industry experience from his work with Stetsasonic, nurtured the guys throughout their creative process and encouraged them to embrace their groundbreaking approach to Hip-Hop.

The main theme of the doc is the group’s evolution over the course of their first three albums and how the public perception of them as the “hippie rappers” lead to the De La Soul Is Dead LP. Also covered are the sample clearance issues that haunt them to this day, their rebirth with the Stakes Is High album and the new Kickstarter driven project and the Anonymous Nobody, which just topped the Billboard Rap charts.
