Rubble Kings - Documentary Trailer

RUBBLE KINGS TRAILER from shan nicholson on Vimeo.

From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end
the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings, the most comprehensive documentation of life during this era of gang rule to date, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted the world over.

Mexican soldiers seized 105 tons of marijuana with a U.S. street value of more than $340 million on Monday in Mexico's biggest-ever pot haul, the army said. Heavily armed soldiers raided a series of homes in a poor suburb of Tijuana, across the border from San Diego, California, and came under fire at least once as they took the drugs, also arresting 11 suspected traffickers.

No doubt he killed the routine, and his talent undeniable. But was the crying at the end real or an act to win fans back?
Either way ... he got us talking about Chris Brown.
