MCMI REPORT: A Genius Leaves The Hood: The Unauthorized Story of Jay Z
Where did this Jay Z documentary come from? It seemed to just pop up out of nowhere. Or is it just me? Was my head in the sand? Well, anyway, anything that says “unauthorized” gets my attention. I wanna know, what is their take on this? I mean, I know it is still subjective, but at least it is not created by the person who is the subject matter. Unlike Beyonce’s self-directed documentary, we may see and hear some things that Jay wouldn’t necessarily approve of or appreciate. And that makes for good Internet! So off we go, let the trumpets blow, but hold on because the driver of the mission is NOT Jay Z.
From watching the trailer, I see that Dame and Jaz-O are interviewed. I’m sure their opinions and versions of the story differ from the official party line. But the documentary looks pretty much complimentary, aiming to show “how hip-hop’s most successful rapper of the past two decades reached the top.”
What do you guys think? Leave a comment after you’ve watched it and give us your review.
