I’m not always a fan of rappers acting, but Andre 3K as Jimi Hendrix is almost the role he was born to play. I mean ever since he started playing the guitar this seemed like a natural progression.
Filmmaker Art Hooker, relative of blues legend John Lee Hooker, is preparing to do for Christian Hip Hop what films such as How to Be an MC and the Art of the MC did for mainstream rap. However instead of just focusing on the technique or the skill involved in the artform he will delve much deeper into the effects the music and movement are having around the world. The film, entitled Unashamed, will chronicle many popular Reach Records artists such as Lecrae, Pro, Trip Lee, KB, Tedashii, Andy Mineo, 1-1-6 Clique and even popular artists outside of the label. Hooker is also hoping to showcase a 37 city tour which culminates in Johannesburg, South Africa.
