THE DOPE SHIT: City of God's Son
I always been a fan of found footage films and videos, but this latest piece of work by filmmaker Kenzo Digital exceeds my expectations. City of God's Son is a carefully blended multimedia presentation. An original score is put together from samples from the music made by the stars of the film Nas, Jay-Z, Ghostface Killah, etc. Its a surreal fictional world within itself. Trailer below....
This project explores the icon of the gangster in modern media, and weaves musical history and gangster film history into an operatic music based story of brotherhood and survival. An homage to 90s New York hip-hop, City of Gods Son is the redefinition of the remix. Featuring legendary soul singer Joe Bataan. A sound film/hip hop opera by Kenzo Digital.
