Video: Word Of Rakim - Short Film

WORDS BY RAKIM from Matt Bieler on Vimeo.

WORDS BY RAKIM, a film by Matt Bieler and Serial Pictures, serves as a visually stunning, honest, creative ode and re-introduction, to Rakim (of Eric B and Rakim), who is recognized as hip-hop’s most influential MC. The format of the film is inspired by the vinyl records that birthed the hip hop art form, so the film is a portrait of two sides of an artist (Sides A and B) and the streets and city he inspired and vice versa. If only more filmmakers would help honor the founding fathers of hip hop in a similar way, perhaps generation now and in the future will get a better sense of the powerful history of the art form.
