While the glamorous 1980’s
continued for much of America, Rappers made it a point to
tell the world there was another section of the country that
wasn’t invited to the party.
As the Urban landscape became the point of no return –
Hip Hop emerged as a voice for the people. This film takes
an unprecedented look at a variety of issues directly affecting
the Urban community – including the crack conspiracy,
censorship, racial profiling, police brutality, poverty, prison
for profit, and the NYPD Hip Hop task Force.
If you think politics has nothing to do with Hip Hop, think
again, Letter to the President explores this rebel music with
a cause. Featuring interviews from an eclectic list of players:
Wyclef Jean, Chingy, Baby, Russell Simmons, Black Eyed Peas,
Common, Davey D, Chuck D, Guy Torry, Mike Epps, Pharohe Monch,
