Hustlers Convention + Q&A

Hailed by Grandmaster Flash and Chuck D, sampled by the Beastie Boys, Wu Tang Clan, and Nas, the influential album Hustlers Convention was the foundation for today’s hip-hop scene. With original interviews including Jalal Nuriddin aka Lightnin’ Rod, Ice T, KRS One, Chuck D, MC Lyte & Melle Mel, the film explores the forgotten roots of rap, and takes a closer look at how the album changed the face of music.


This screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with original member of The Last Poets, Jalal Mansur Nuriddin, director Mike Todd and producer and director of photography, Quenell Jones.
