Bling: A Planet Rock (2007)
Directed by a Former House of Nubian Employee Ms. Raquel Cepeda.
You might have spent thousands on the diamond you're blingin'... but do you know how much it really costs?
In this riveting, unforgettable film, hip-hop celebrities Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan, Paul Wall and Tego Calderon travel to war-torn Sierra Leone, West Africa, and come face to face with the victims of the blood diamond industry so deeply entwined in hip-hop.
The filmmakers explore the cultural significance of diamond jewelry in hip-hop and trace its evolution from early '80s old-school ghetto culture to the bling-encrusted billion-dollar industry it is today.
Featuring Ishmael Beah, best-selling author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier and interviews with Kanye West, Big Daddy Kane, Jadakiss and Mr. T, Bling is without question one of the most powerful films you will ever see.
