| Made in the spirit of hip-hop
This documentary was made in the spirit of hip hop, by people who obviously know, understand, love and appreciate hip hop and the ideas that are presented by and through it. It was touching to see Clyde Stubblefield - James Brown's ex drummer - who was the creator of funky drummer - the most sampled piece of music - who is happy for others using his creation, does not care about the money, and only as a side note mentions that some gratitude would have been appropriate, but doesn't make a big deal out of it. It was also nice to hear views which are against sampling, with one of them being something like "sampling isn't creative, but in anyway the law should not be involved". Highly recommended to anyone who likes Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B or even popular music.
