Check out my review on Ghosts Of Cite’ Soleil, a powerful documentary on Haitian gangs.
Wednesday, November 28, 2007
2pac is obviously named after the slain rapper and there is another gang member who calls himself "50 Cent". While many of the gang members in the film worship hip-hop, ironically, no hardcore rapper’s story could ever equate the striking poverty in third world countries, especially in Haiti. One random person shouts to President Bush, "We pray for three things! Education, food and sleep!" Therefore, it is slightly peculiar how hip-hop is worshiped. The ghettos of South Central or New York City are about as far removed from Haiti as the trailer parks of Idaho.
