First D-Nice turned heads with his raps. Then he resurfaced with his photography. Now he's producing the beautifully filmed video series True Hip-Hop Stories. He's already filmed rap legends like Masta Ace, Do It All from Lords of the Underground and Kwame. Yesterday he added great stories from the self appointed Erin Brockovich of Hip-Hop, Monie Love.

Other photography worth checking is Hip Hop Immortals and all of Jamel Shabaz's work.

You should have put Monie in the middle.

Wow, I never knew! I followed D-Nice until BDP dissed him. Nice find!

I haven't heard some of those names in almost 20 years! Ha, they sure are old. Wait...

Anyway, thanks for the great post.

My favorite part was Monie saying "Bloody Hell,.. I know you're Big Daddy Kane," and how she brought that song reference back at the end.

Mr. Nice may claim otherwise, but I know how he took out those suckas.

Great post. Haven't thought of D-Nice in a while, but I do remember he had one of the tightest high-top fades in the game as evidenced on his debut album cover.

It is good to see when dudes still active and involved. I thought Nas did a service to the older cats on "Where Are They Now?" and I am always happy when I see they are keeping that era alive.
