Behind the Lyrics

Eminem

Year: 2013

Runtime: 00:57:17

Rapper, record producer and songwriter Marshall Bruce Mathers III, commonly known as Eminem was born in 1972 in Kansas City, USA. Having sold over 100 million albums worldwide, he is regarded as one of the best selling artists in the world and has been previously ranked as the best selling artist of the 2000's. Eminem burst on to the US charts in 1999 with a controversial take on the hip hop subgenre, horrorcore. His first major label debut album Slim Shady EP contains a provocative fest of violent, twisted lyrics and is claimed to be written from the perspective of his alter ego Slim Shady. While offending an array of individuals and various other artists named in his album lead him to become one of the biggest starts on the planet. Eminem isn't just about controversy and shock value. The often misunderstood major talent has given white rappers credibility with his string of Grammy nominations , his critically acclaimed film 8 mile and three multiplatinum studio albums. Aside from Eminem's musical success, he has continually hit headlines with his turbulent relationship with Kimberley Ann Scott and ongoing legal disputes with his own mother. With an eighth studio album on its way, Eminem continues to take the world by storm. We take an intimate look into the colourful life and career of this bad boy rapper including interviews with industry experts and unseen footage and clips from his most popular hits.

  • Freestyle: The Art of the Rhyme

    Various Artists

    Year: 2000

    Runtime: 1 hr 11 min

    Over 15 years in the making, the world of improvisational rap, is explosively explored in this award wining and critically acclaimed authentic look into the life, music and history of 1990's underground hip hop culture! Packed with rare and archival footage of some of the most amazing MC's ever to bless the mic, the film features the story of MC Supernatural and his quest to become a champion, battling many in his way including his arch nemesis Craig G of the famed Marley Marl Juice Crew. Made by a grass roots co-operative of independent local community filmmakers, b-boys, DJ's, and MC's, this documentary takes us on a journey through the previously unexamined dimensions of hip hop as a spiritual and community based art form. Combining the best of independent art house cinema within the hip hop mix tape format, the film features legendary battles from New York to LA, including The Lyricist Lounge, Project Blowed, and The Wake Up Show! The artists featured in the film, from Mos Def to Notorious BIG provide insight into one of the least seen faces present in the music: improvisation and creativity. Structured with insights from the Last Poet's esteemed Abioudun Oyweole and jazz & rap historians Freestyle connects the dots from the pain and love of yesterday's poets to today's hip-hop innovators. Revealing the art forms stunningly emotional outlet; whether sharing energy in a street corner cipher for block cred or a stadium's commercial rap performance full of 1,000s of paying fans. Like the Griots of Africa or the wail of Coltrane's saxophone, today's hip-hop MCs all have a similar purpose: to share their experience with others hungry for truth, community and healing.

  • Stole the Show: Director's Cut

    Kygo

    Year: 2018

    Runtime: 51 min

    "Stole The Show drops us into the heart of the music streaming revolution.
    Our story follows the rise of Kygo, the first star born in this new streaming age. His success across streaming platforms, driven by his invention of the “tropical house” genre, changed the fundamental rules of how an artist succeeds.
    Stole The Show centers around Kygo's first arena show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, using it as a lens to examine not only Kygo's journey from his bedroom studio in Bergen, Norway, but also the revolutionary rise of streaming.
    Before Barclays, Kygo was in an oddly indefinable position. His success felt major, becoming the fastest artist in history to reach one billion streams. However, no one had been in this position before, so there were no common benchmarks to go by. He needed a test to gauge his standing outside of the digital world. Barclays Center was that test, and the sold-out results reflected a resounding success. Stole The Show, featuring Bono, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, and Shaggy, examines Kygo's ascent within this brave new world of streaming, following his career from before it could be called a career through the moment he officially broke through the ceiling in Brooklyn, and beyond."
