just finished watching, it was pretty interesting.
highlighted Turbulence as the dowtown ghetto singer tryna make it, a young country girl named Kemoy, and a tone-deaf privileged uptown fool.
def recommend it

that was interesting the awful uptown crew got on the stageshow via daddy's connection
& of course flopped. the privilege only got them so far. sumfest audience is a tough one
even for talented artists. I thought the turbulence bit was most intriguing. it reminded me
that while you may hear an artist on the radio see them in Cali clubs etc
in reality they may be broke and live in a zinc roof fort. also didnt realize how JA
never really accepted him until his notorious video broke him . i tried to watch a few others
in the afro-pop series, but this one stood out. nice to see reggae doc longside sesame st. on my pbs
station. a
