Even though this is a fan made documentary, it’s still a pretty damn good one and has been making the rounds online today. It even landed on the front page of Complex earlier.
“My first intention was to make like a 10 minute video with Kanye quotes and such, but I had so much material so I decided to make it a tad longer. The closest I could get to a real documentary. (We really need one in all honesty).My goal was to capture something from every solo album, and the video is basically chronological. Starting with CD and ending with MBDTF.I entitled it Where The Lonely Kids Go When The Bell Rings (I know that’s not the actual line in Eyes Closed), because I feel like that sums up Kanye’s career – The outsider. The misunderstood genius.Let me know when it’s taken down (I’ll try to re-up), and let me know what you think of it!This took me 5000 hours to make so please be kind. And the sound/video is bad in some parts.The sound is out of sync after a while (yeah it sucks, but nothing I can do about it) – But, apparently if you DOWNLOAD the original source file from Vimeo, the audio is synced..I hope you enjoy it anyway.”
There’s been a lot of talk about this documentary while it was being made. Well here’s the special on it before the full thing drops tomorrow. Make sure to get your hands on it, looks pretty damn good.
Dogg Lion has been working on this documentary for a very long time now, so it’s good that we finally get the entire thing today. It describes very well his transition from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion.
Can’t wait until this documentary is finally released (no official release date yet). It’s called “The Otherside” and it shines a light on the growing hip-hop scene in the Pacific NW. It’s great to see a project like this coming together showcasing all the amazing talent we have out here and putting some more names on the map. The documentary features artists like Macklemore, Sol, J. Pinder, Blue Scholars, The Physics, and many more. Here’s a “Synopsis” from the video description found on YouTube.
Known by music fans as the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix and grunge rock, there is a new music scene brewing in the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle hip hop artists are redefining the genre and exploding onto the national scene as they attempt to capitalize on the do-it-yourself digital age of the music world. Some have found success, but others wonder if the dream of “making it” in a crowded industry is still attainable.
While the fame and attention mounts, gain a firsthand look at the eclectic mix of artists that define northwest hip hop, as they work to conquer a genre that has long been inaccessible to a city void of major labels.”

Jay-Z takes us behind the scenes and behind the story of how the Brooklyn Nets came to be what they are today. Great new 24-minute documentary that is definitely worth watching. Do not sleep on this one, every move Jay-Z makes should be documented, at least the important ones.
With the release of his new album “Dreams and Nightmares”, Meek Mill gives us a documentary to go along with it. So here is is, great way to kill 26 minutes.
As most of you can already tell, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ album “The Heist” is doing amazing numbers. Their independent success is unbelievable. It’s awesome to see an artist from Seattle make it this far, great for the city. Here’s a 15 minute documentary showcasing how it all came to fruition shot by Jabari.
Been waiting for this documentary to drop for a while now. It’s nice to see what goes into the making of an album and life on the road for a major hip-hop artist like MGK. Here’s the first part of his documentary “Lace Up”.
