HASH(0xa456e8d0) out of 5 stars Great documentary of exploitation! July 22 2013
By Curtis Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
There's nothing surprising here. The familiar story of artists who are drawn into a maze of deceit and exploitation only to find themselves on the outside looking in and badly in debt. The interesting twist is how individuals tried to market themselves in false names to the degree that they actually believed in the deceptions! Very well crafted and amazingly revealing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

HASH(0xa456eb1c) out of 5 stars All Recording Artists should see this DVD Oct. 24 2013
By Teecha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was hip to some of the things mentioned in the documentary, like musicians calling home needing cash because they hadn't gotten paid, but getting the full story straight from the headliners Master Gee and Wonder Mike of how they were treated and their struggle to regain their brand, their ability to make a living, their names...priceless!

I chose this rating because I thought the movie was excellent. I liked it because it gave a voice to the underdog and it highlighted points-of-view from the top dog. I recommend this movie for everyone who is interested in hip-hop history and music history in general.

HASH(0xa456efd8) out of 5 stars Very informative July 28 2013

I never knew Sugar Hill records was this devious. I grew up on this music and as a DJ during this era the Sugar Hill label had major respect. When we saw a new record in that blue sleeve with the trademark Sugar Hill signature, we would buy the records on site without even hearing them first. Wow...eye opening story.

I enjoyed purchasing this item due to the fact I grew up with "Master Gee" and "Wonder Mike" and others in the film. It was sad to see how money corrupts the best of relationships and even from the sandbox. It is a very important film especially for aspiring musicians and actors and anyone else involved in the entertainment business. A textbook case of concentrating on the "show" and not the "business" of show business. Always retain the best entertainment lawyer you can prior to signing any contracts no matter how desperate your current situation is financially.
