Gay Hip Hop artists Jenro, Johnny Dangerous, and director Alex Hinton, poolside at the National Hotel on South Beach Miami. Alex shares his thoughts on independent films and getting distribution after a great opening in Toronto.
I work with LGBTQ youth at an organization in Chicago and we thought Pick up the Mic would be a great video for the youth to see. We've been having trouble locating it and were hoping you might know where we could get a copy. Thanks!
I love the fact that you are breaking the barrier of involving all "people" into the area of freedom to do music. We also have a documentary about hip hop in Kansas City and all our unsigned artists. I have three gay rappers under my management and on the DVD that we are trying to get exposed. Check out our network. www.micsonfirekc.com. We would like to join your drive in independent the art form of the freedom to be you. Thank You
