Hustlers convention - the hustlers party ep


An ex-convict and former US Army paratrooper, Nuriddin conceived Hustlers Convention as a cautionary Blaxploitation-style narrative about living large and paying a heavy price. Full of verbal dexterity, street slang and bawdy humor, the album lays out the story of two brothers whose high-rolling lifestyle ends up on Death Row. “If you were 14-years-old and trying to understand the streets, it was sort of like a verbal Bible,” recalls Chuck D. Todd’s film frames the album in historical context, from the civil rights struggle and Harlem-based Black Arts Movement of the 1960s to the explosive rise of hip-hop in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Animation sequences bring to life the epic story contained within the Convention, as its themes interweave with the history and culture that is being explored. Footage from iconic Blaxploitation films of the era and historical archive further bring the period to life. However, this is more than just a tale of how a sub-culture evolved, it is also a personal and very human story of Jalal’s own struggles.
