Dope Music Video: K'Naan T.I.A (This. Is. Africa)

I spotted this vid yesterday, I immediately expected it to be uber creative mainly because its directed by Partizan's Nabil, but what I didnt expect was the vid to feature a clip from a film a friend of mine shot in Trinidad about a year ago, called "Lioness of Lisabi" which is an autobiographical tale about Fela Kuti's mother. Look for the clip of the two women in the beginning, more film info below.

FILM: Tetro

Im not the one to be all hyped about all the mainstream summer movies coming out, even though I have the release date for Star Trek inked on my calendar. Im more excited to see Tetro the new film from Francis Ford Coppola (Godfather(s), numerous classics) it stars Vincent Gallo who I havent seen act other than in his own films (Buffalo 66, The Brown Bunny). The film is playing at Cannes and will hopefully hit US theatres somewhere amidst all the summer hoopla, or maybe early fall as the fest circuit winds down. Check out the trailer below, ENJOY!
