In the summer of 2004 Dave Chappelle decides to throw the ultimate block party in the streets of Brooklyn, New York. This film (directed by Michel Gondry) shows behind the scenes material + performances by Kanye West, Dead Prez, Erykah Badu, Mos Def and many others. Where did the Notorious B.I.G. grow up? How is Kanye West going to perform with a marching band from Ohio? And is it bigger than hiphop?
