Watch Strong Enemies – The Untold Case of Dr. Sebi (trailer) Prior to his untimely demise, rap artist Nipsey Hussle discussed his intent on releasing a documentary on acclaimed pathologist, herbalist, biochemist, and naturalist Dr. Sebi. Born Alfredo Bowan in the country of Houndras and later migrated to the United States, Dr. Sebi is most notably known for his claims to have cured AIDS patients. He passed in August 2016, with his programs of alkaline dieting set in the minds of many as the proper way of eating to live.
Upon Nipsey’s transtion, media mogul Nick Cannon stepped in to ensure that the deed of telling Dr. Sebi’s story saw the light of day. Many claimed this was a dangerous task and Nick would not be able to complete it due to much skepticism with mainstream media. Staying true to his word, Nick has released a trailer that shows that task is coming to fruition. With appearances from the likes of Professor X, Dr. Umar Johnson, Common, Rizza Islam, Dr. Eric Michael Dyson, Tariq Nasheed, Erykah Badu, and more, no release date is set. It is only slated as coming soon. This trailer is a must watch for those seeking truth and knowledge to the story of Dr. Sebi. #TheMarathonContinues
The Diplomats aka Dipset made an impact on the hip hop culture in the early 2000s with the release of their first album “Diplomatic Immunity”. With the soundscape provided by the production of the Heatmakerz and a relentless mixtape grind that provided street anthems, Dipset’s movement spanned beyond their native Harlem, NYC. From fashion (most notable, front man Cam’ron’s obsession with the color pink) to sound, the Dips cannot be denied when mentioning influential rap acts.
Over the years, the Diplomats faced ups and downs. With beefs that were internal as much as external, they continued to pump out bangers as solo acts as much as they did as a unit. Jim Jones would arise to be successful rapper, Cam’ron continued to push his career and film ventures, Juelz Santana faced label & legal issues, and Freekey Zekey began to become more active in creating music. Being the four core members of the movement, they did push other members of their collective to become acts of their own. After a very public split between Cam’ron and Jim Jones, the group seemed to be over as all members began to push their own agendas.
After years of little to no communication, cooler heads prevailed and Dipset reunited and released the album “Diplomatic Ties”. Promising a documentary to accompany the album, they have finally delivered. “Diplomatic Ties” (Documentary) covers the history of the group and the legacy that they created.
