Hustlers_Convention_DVDTo celebrate the release of Hustlers Convention – out on DVD 27th July – we have a copy to giveaway!

A fascinating look into the little-told story of rap’s origins, this critically-acclaimed documentary examines the 1973 album Hustlers Convention, from the “Grandfather of Rap” Lightnin’ Rod AKA Jalal Nuriddin.

Executive produced by Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Hustlers Convention looks at the album that would become a cornerstone in the evolution of Hip Hop – and the history that influenced it.

A valuable slice of cultural history” ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Hailed by Grandmaster Flash and Chuck D, sampled by the Beastie Boys, Wu Tang Clan, and Nas, Hustlers Convention was the foundation for today’s Hip Hop scene. This film tells of one of music’s buried masterpieces: the missing link between soul power and Hip Hop , which gave its creator the right to claim his title as the ‘Grandfather of Rap’.

Released in 1973 by original member of The Last Poets, Jalal Mansur Nuriddin, Hustlers Convention tells the story of two young hustlers who attend the eponymous convention, only to get tangled up in a shootout and police chase. It is also a tale within a tale of culture and identity, of ambition and greed. It gave the streets a voice, was recited in neighbourhoods word for word and still resonates with meaning today.

With original interviews including Jalal Nuriddin aka Lightnin’ Rod, Ice T, KRS One, Chuck D, MC Lyte and Melle Mel, Hustlers Convention explores the forgotten roots of rap, and takes a closer look at how the album changed the face of music.
