Jay-Z: Fade To Black
In November 2003, hip-hop legend JAY-Z threw what would become a legendary retirement party at the most important music venue in the nation: a sold-out Madison Square Garden. Joining him for this monumental musical celebration were some of the most popular artists in the industry including Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott & R. Kelly along with hip-hop icons P. Diddy, Kayne West, Damon Dash and more.
Narrated by Jay-Z himself, Fade to Black captures the stunning imagery of the onstage performances that night, the entire hip-hop family in candid backstage moments and also chronicles the soul-searching dramatic process of creating his best-selling The Black Album. This film looking back on the meteoric rise of his career is now a DVD that no true hip-hop fan should be without.
