Set In The West: The Genesis of LA Hip Hop Private Screening
Sat, April 29, 2017, 4:30 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
SET IN THE WEST is a masterpiece that you must see. Uncle Jamm's Army DJ, David Storms aka Dr. Funkenstein and Documentarian, Wolfgang Amadeuz, co-writer and producer has decided to disrupt our minds, and turn back the hands of time, to enlighten us all by informing and sharing with us the answer we thought we all knew to the question: Was HIP HOP set in the WEST?
The documentary that you are going to see will have surprising features from Legends that had a hand in creating, building and contributing to this globally transforming music called Hip Hop. If you’re a true fan of Hip Hop, then those that speak on its behalf, you’ll surely know; such as Uncle Jamms Army, World Class Wreckin’ Cru, Z Cars Promotions, to DJ Battle Katt, Russ Parr, Mellow Man Ace, Dr. DJ Funkenstein, Egyptian Lover, Fresh, Jazzy D, MC Eiht, Sadiki Bakari and many more.
Though the origins of Hip Hop emerging from New York City in the 1970’s are very well documented, however, this heavily featured documentary will blow your mind with untold and rarely heard stories of how the West Coast Hip Hop movement started in Los Angeles.
SET IN THE WEST will provide the missing history of L.A. Hip Hop that only these information holders can dispense. As we know there has been many inconsistencies from start to finish on which Hip Hop has been founded, but once you see SET IN THE WEST, it is safe to say that the pieces of this very confusing and scattered large puzzle, seems a little bit easier to put together.
Our featured documentary speaker Black Dot will be in the house with his books Hip Hop Decoded, and Urban Culture Decoded.
