This documentary perfectly sayseverything about one of the all-time best hip-hop albums. Although he was another rapper who grew up in 'the projects',surrounded by crime in Queensbridge, New York, we learn that Nasenjoyed a more cultured, educated living environment at home thanprobably the vast majority of those around him did, with access toliterature and poetry books from his teacher mother, to the point wherehis own father supported him in his decision to drop out of schoolearly, feeling unchallenged and uncared for in the education system.
