Ren Revolution is a visual art organization based in NY and while this is the first time I’ve been exposed to their work I must say this is something I definitely want to view in its full glory. The Emcee Memoirs : A Cinematic, is a collaboration with Asha Hadiyah, Joseph “Manifesto” Golden, Josiah “Siah” Nimely and Word Is Bond regular Lafayette Stokely. If you are thinking this is just going to be another mixtape then think again; this is a trailer to the upcoming “visual” LP with the aformentioned artists playing specific roles. The trailer doesn’t give much away, instead showing a brief montage of all parties. Peep the full details below.
The Ren Revolution Presents, The Emcee Memoirs : A Cinematic LP. A new musical experience Directed by Jahmel R. In the city of “Nuu Yawk” Hip Hop is life, and the Annual Emcee Competition is an event that crowns the champion of each Boro in the city. Once victorious, the champion and his or her crew has musical influence in the Boros, and then will battle on to become champion of the entire city. Our tale follows a young woman named Moro, a gifted Emcee who has lost the confidence to rap due to the death of her older brother Stoke, the former champion of Bruklenn. Moro’s quest to find herself through the art of Hip Hop will lead her to confront her dark past and inspire a city through the power of her voice.
