SPIT GOLD UNDER AN EMPIRE DOCUMENTARY
Filmmaker Emily Kai Bock captures the essence of a young New York City underground rap scene in her documentary Spit Gold Under An Empire. The Montreal-based director followed MC's Mykki Blanco, Angel Haze and C.J. Fly as they went about their daily routine including walking their neighborhood streets and live audio sessions. The short is part of the larger New American Noise project that covers ground in other cities like New Orleans, Los Angeles and Detroit and the respective music scenes going on there as well.
