A Night In The Underground Chicago Hip-Hop Documentary Phillip Morris

Chi-town filmmaker Braden Wambach takes viewers on a personal tour of his city’s thriving underground hip-hop scene in his short documentary “A Night In The Underground.” The film takes a look at the lives and careers of several notable Chicago artists, including Pugs Atomz, The Primeridian, Philip Morris, Ang 13, and several others. In addition to highlighting the talents of many artists relatively unknown outside of the underground circuit, the film also presents an interesting look at the workings of a city’s local hip-hop community from the inside out, a rare opportunity for those of us residing outside of any particular locale. It’s also refreshing to see such a diversity of styles representing Chicago’s contribution to hip-hop aside from the well-known names that have come to define the city’s sound to the outside world. And clocking in at less than 30 minutes, this means you can catch the whole thing during your lunch break below.

    We were having B-Boy meetings at 57th & LSD before hip house! Where is Chi-Rock, Cashius D, Kingdom Rock from Ill State, Duro (Lower Links), JP Chill from WHPK, Blue Gargoyle, Dem Dare, etc.? I mean if we’re talking about Chicago Underground Hip Hop HISTORY (Early 80′s to Now). Much Love to Ang 13, Prime, Pugs!!
