Heads up to people in LA, tonite is the premier of Girls on the Wall. Directed by Heather Ross, the documentary follows a group of girls in prison who (taking straight from the film's site) get a shot at redemption in a most unlikely form: a musical based on their lives.
As part of the opening night proceedings, doings and goings on I'll be up on the roof spinning a set of tunes focused on musics made by and / or about people in various stages of the incarceration process, so come one come all. Until then check out some of the more hip hop centric hits I've been digging through in getting ready for the show.
