Yo! Bum Rush The Movie Theatre

If you're in Melbourne, go check out this documentary about PE.

"If Malcolm X had a hip-hop group, that would be it," notes Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, one of several enthusiastic talking heads who profess their admiration. But the documentary's real insight comes with the fly-on-the-wall dissection of the relationship between Public Enemy's two distinct rappers: political activist Chuck D (Carlton Ridenhour) and now reality show host Flavor Flav (William Drayton jr).

I've got a personal anecdote about sharing the stage with Flavor Flav a few years back, but I'll save that for a day when I can't think of anything else to post.
