Scratchmasta' Jazzy G Interview
Click here to view video.
This interview was conducted during the summer of 2005 in the South Bronx as part of the ongoing SKILLZ DVD Magazine project that I am working on with my friend and fellow filmmaker: Javier Goin. Scratchmasta' Jazzy G is one of the great pioneers of Hip Hop Culture and he took out some time during an event held at the famous or maybe more aptly termed "infamous" Hunt's Point to share his views on the history of Hip Hop and where he sees it heading now.
To get in touch with Scratchmasta' Jazzy G you can reach him on his emails at:
Hunt's Point was prominently profiled on HBO's documentary "Pimps Up, Ho's Down". It can be a bit rough in that area, but I spent quite a bit of time there this summer filming interview as well as shooting a music video for upcoming Rapper J Gutta. If you've followed my vlog, my last entry showed J Gutta along with his friend Andy of "Andy's Barbershop" going in the kitchen of a local Chinese Take Out in the South Bronx. I will be profiling J Gutta in a future installment.
