City of God's Son

I slept on this shit but Kenzo screened it for me last night. You gotta download it. I can't explain what it is so I'ma let the people tell it:

"City of God's Son" by Kenzo Digital

“City of God’s Son” is a revolutionary new audio driven cinematic experience by artist Kenzo Digital.  A story completely created out of samples and re-appropriated audio and visual media, “City of God’s Son” stars rappers Nas, Jay Z, Ghostface, Notorious BIG, Raekwon, and actors Samuel Jackson, Lawrence Fishburne, Delroy Lindo, and Al Pacino.  Narrated by legendary soul singer Joe Bataan.  It is a crime drama/coming of age tale of three fictitious characters growing up in a crime ridden mythical city in a jungle.  This project explores the icon of the gangster in modern media, and weaves musical history and gangster film history into an operatic music based story of brotherhood and survival.The project has received critical acclaim from the Huffington Post, Kanye West, Complex Magazine, Fader Magazine, and many others.  As one of the most viral and groundbreaking forms of new media art, “City of God’s Son” fuses musical and cinema mythologies into a one of a kind sound film, redefining how stories can be told and the very definition of the remix and film score.
