Spirituality meets Hip Hop
Soundz of Spirit is a documentary that asks about the creative process of Hip Hop and where does the influence come from. Artists like Goapele, KRS-One, Common, Talib Kweli, Nappy Roots, Shock G, the Last Poets, Medusa, Saul Williams, DJ Q Bert, as well as, local California artists, describe their inspiration from answers that range from the spiritual to social influences. This documentary is able to capture the love and dedication that artists have for Hip Hop by explaining why they sacrifice all for the willingness to be able to express themselves truthfully and uncensored. Soundz of Sprit tries to define Hip Hop culture by its internal workings of the artists which is different from how it is portrayed by mainstream media. For this reason alone it is worth seeing.
