Brooklyn-born John Forté was a Grammy-nominated
musician in The Fugees at 21 and a federal prison inmate at 26. When
his prison sentence was remarkably commuted in 2008, Forté was given a
second chance to share his talents with the world. Chronicling his
concert tour across Russia, this inspirational documentary takes us on
Forté's personal journey—one that's as much about having his music heard
as it is about hearing and learning from the music of others.
Featuring: John Forté, Alina Orlova, Sunsay, Billy’s Band, Zero People, Artemy Troitsky and more.

DOIN' IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL, NYC explores
the definition, history, culture and social impact of New York's summer
b-ball scene, widely recognized as the worldwide "Mecca" of the sport.
In New York City, pick-up basketball is not just a sport. It is a way
of life. There are 700+ outdoor courts, and an estimated 500,000
players, the most loyal of which approach the game as a religion, and
the playground as their church. "You can play high school or college for four years. You can play Pro for a decade. You can play pick-up ... for life." DOIN' IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL, NYC lovingly uncovers this
movement through the voices of playground legends, NBA athletes, and
most importantly the common ballplayer who all day looks forward to
calling "next" game at their local schoolyard.

At A3C in October, as I walked around in my drunken stupor, I had the opportunity to formally meetYamin (AmDex depending on how long you’ve known him) and even though I cannot remember much of the conversation (please remember I stated I was drunk) I do remember how humble he was when I told HIM that he was a part of Clan Destined. Over the next few months I kept hearing his name and he kept popping up on my Twitter Timeline so why not interview the cat…Right? The interview is a bit formal since it was done via email. Enjoy and such!:
How long have you been involved in the Atlanta music scene?(i.e. DJing, Performing) Since 99, 2000. I’ve done all aspects from promotions with Redd Distribution and Loud Records, artist contact, radio host and MD at WRAS Rhythm and Vibes, deejay for countless events and artists, beat battle champ, and all of that was before 25. Three years later, I’ve found new and better ways to keep going.
As promised Out Da Box TV is happy to bring you Part 2 of our in-depth interview with NY Emcee "Roc Marciano". In this segment, Roc gives us some insight on his move to Cali, and provides advice to up and coming NY Emcees. He also speaks on his aspirations for his forthcoming album "Reloaded", the experience gained in working with Q-Tip and meeting J. Dilla for the first time. The interview concludes with Roc listing a number of upcoming projects he plans to release and some optimistic closing words for his fans. It indeed was a special fulfillment to finally work with Roc for this interview. We give much respect to the brother for being humble enough to build with us on such an extensive level. Please take the time to enjoy this segment of the interview and definitely be sure to check out Part 1 if you haven't yet. We hope you are inspired! Enjoy!
