‘City of God’s Son’ Brings Hip-Hop Characters to Life


It’s a hip-hop opera starring some of our favorite caricatures characters in hip hop and gangster flicks: Nas, Jay-Z, Ghostface, Biggie Smalls, Raekwon, Samuel L. Jackson, Delroy Lindo and Laurence Fishburne.  City of God’s Son is an audio/video compilation by artist Kenzo Digital that examines media and hip hop’s obsession with gangsters in both film and music.  By blending multiple multiple media and art genres, the project tells the story of three ficticious characters growing up in a crime-ridden city, featuring vocals by legendary soul artist Joe Bataan.  Interesting stuff.  Check out the trailer below the jump.
