Birth of a Nation: 4/29/92

Share Button

Shot from the eye of the hurricane in South Central Los Angeles moments after the Rodney King verdict was announced, Matthew McDaniel’s footage is as raw as it gets. Capturing an open sore, where uprising met opportunism, the documentary is edited into a video nasty melange of sound bites, violent rhetoric and hopeless frustration. However, it’s perhaps more notorious for its sampled use on Dr Dre’s post-King opus The Chronic. “The Day the Niggaz Took Over” and “Lil’ Ghetto Boy” both snatch the soul with a couple of poignant quotes, but to truly experience the sheer anger, it’s best to catch the whole show.

When I stumble upon a really good blog post I usually do one of three thing:1.Show it to the relevant contacts.2.keep it in all of the common social bookmarking sites.3.Be sure to visit the same site where I came accross the post.After reading this article I am really concidering doing all of them.

  8. Bangalore, though, will get another chance. Mumbai won’t. In fact, the result doesn’t change the course of the tournament much. The Bangalore-Lions game still remains a knockout affair. Bangalore need to win to force a three-way tie between themselves, Lions and Mumbai for the second semi-final slot from Group B. Kohli’s late hitting, however, has made sure their net run-rate stays the best of the three, while Mumbai’s ends worst
