 Quote of the Month
To die for an idea; it is unquestionably noble. But how much nobler it would be if men died for ideas that were true!

GeoReview: Dave Chappelle's Block Party

by Clayton Ruley

In 2005, Dave Chappelle got together his favorite
Hip Hop and R&B artists in NYC for a good ol' fashion block party! The film directed by Michael Gondry show the process of getting the party together from the location, marching band and the crowd and you get a glimpse
of Chappelle, the person away from the microphone.

The show features Talib Kweli, Common, Kanye West Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, The Roots, Dead Prez, and the reunion of The Fugees! You get to see how Dave buses in people from all walks of life in his home of Ohio to be witnesses to the concert and their reactions and views on Chappelle. Also he give the Central State University Marching Band. an opportunity to perform as well. Corey Smith of Blacksmith Entertainment does the music supervision and it's good to see these artists, favorites of mine and Dave also, get their chance to shine
with an audience that is without a doubt more than usual!

Dave does his thing in the movie, making people laugh throughout but the point of the party is more than him but of the music and the message that the music and trip is sending overall.

A old school concept with new school players this is a excellent see for fans of Chappelle and of the artists.

The DVD could have had more bonus features but I will still give the DVD 4 GeoGlobes for the message.
