    Format: DVD
    I was a bit surprised at the quality of this documentary, considering it hadn't made much of a buzz before it's release. As a longtime Hip Hop head, and a fan of crime and prison documentaries, I found Rhyme & Punishment to be an eye-opening look at rappers and the prison system.

    The film itself was shot and edited well, but its real success comes from all of the exclusive interviews. Despite the fact that I was already familiar with the arrests of most of the artists featured, their interviews shed a great deal of light on what most of us didn't know. You also get an in-depth look at what life is like specifically for established rappers behind bars.

    Any rap fan worth their salt should already know about the existence of the "Hip Hop Police." But what this documentary does a great job of is shining a spotlight at how law enforcement both targets urban music artists, and how uneven the legal playing field can be for them in court. One of the most surprising stories comes from Project Pat, when he discusses how simply rapping about illegal activities had an influence on his conviction. While an action star in movies can gun down dozens of enemies without it reflecting on his personal life, rappers unfortunately have their lyrics used against them in court.

    What's interesting about Rhyme & Punishment is that many of the artists don't make excuses for their crimes, or paint themselves as innocent. But they do point out through personal stories that many rappers are either singled out, or have their rights violated to some degree. Most important of all, many artists featured in the documentary make it clear that there's nothing worth glorifying about being locked up.

    Finally someone decided to show the masses that prison is not a positive aspect of Hip Hop culture. Whether you rap or not, prison is real! It definitely paints an authentic picture. For those interested in using Hip Hop to reach and teach youth and young adults I suggest checking out "Live Above The Hype: A Hip Hop Life Skills Curriculum." It includes 20 insightful lessons that initiate in depth self reflection in at risk youth and young adults, with a powerful foreword written by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson! Salute to Rhyme and Punishment
