June 6th, 2014: Fear of a Black Hat

Fear of a Black Hat

Cast and Crew:  Rusty Cundieff (Director, Writer); Mark Christopher Lawrence, Rusty Cundieff, Larry B. Scott, Kasi Lemmons, Faizon Love, Kurt Loder, Lance Crouther

What It’s About: The rise and fall of the rap group NWH (Niggaz With Hats) is chronicled in this rap mockumentary.

Why Watch it Today?: 2 Live Crew was found obscene on this date in 1990, just one of many pieces of rap history called back to and mocked in this often overlooked comedy, which is usually billed as “Rap’s Spinal Tap“, an easy description that somewhat sells it short.
