This is not a music video (sex, thugs, cars). Instead, Focused Digizine, with the exception of the club segment, is the urban version of The New York Times. The animation series w/ mos def felt very realistic and I sympathized with the main character Blak -- I think most artist, rappers or others, can relate to purity vs. commercialization. The N focus w/ Nelson George and Sam Jackson talking about to Be a Black Man was a favorite too. In a nut shell, this DVD tries to touch-on a bunch of aspects of urban culture and does real justice to them. They even have a spoken word segment on there produced by the creator of Def Poetry Jam, Bruce George. Classic line from this issue is when Dead Prez talks about the NYPD being on some "Mississippi S___". LOL. Can't wait for # 2 to drop.
