"...The best hip-hop film of all, taking on obvious targets and sacred cows alike..."
A hip-hop satire in the mock-documentary style of "This Is Spinal Tap". Filmmaker Nina Blackburn takes her camera and follows popular rap group, NWZ (Niggaz with Hats). The band's 3 members explain their philosophy and reminisce about their many experiences -- which include run-ins with right-wing zealots, battles with rival rappers and the manipulations of greedy groupies.
