educate yourselves: Sadat X via D-Nice by jig burn

True Hip-Hop Stories: Sadat X of Brand Nubian from D-Nice on Vimeo.

In this edition of True Hip-Hop Stories, Sadat X discusses the making of the classic Brand Nubian recording Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down. He also reflects on the state of hip-hop today and how his stint on Rikers Island changed his life.

whether a fan of hip-hop or not…it is shot beautifully by the classic emcee D-Nice.

Sadat X is one of those musicians that just has his head on right and seems to be blessed with talent.  he.s talking about his Brand Nubian [the group he came up in] era.  what.s most interesting about D-Nice.s video series is that he captures the stories of all these under-appreciated artists that are constantly overshadowed by the bullshit of how America sees hip-hop.  his videos are video documentations of unwritten history.  enjoy.
