For Your Viewing Pleasure

If you're not out Mardi Gra-ing it up tonight, and just plan to kick it on the couch instead, you might want to flip on the tube and check out Byron Hurt's Hip Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes on PBS. It airs across the country this evening (local schedules can be easily found at PBS.org).

Reportedly, the documentary sets out to give a contextualized analysis of the genre, with a specific look at its violence, homophobia, and, misogyny, yet in a way that ultimately takes the form of "a love letter to hip-hop in spite of its pointed critique."
