With the current release of R.E.A.L. Entertainment’s Talk of the Streets Part II DVD, we reposted our review of the first DVD.

R.E.A.L. talk
Like mixtapes, DVDs can be an inexpensive and effective way to showcase local artists. R.E.A.L. Entertainment artist W.O.P. proves this point by hosting his Talk of the Streets DVD. Talk of the Streets, which takes place mostly in the hoods of Harrisburg, includes videos, freestyles, interviews and a CD.

W.O.P. kicks the DVD off with his video for “187 Freestyle.” The song jacks the beat from “Deep Cover” and features S. Monz, J. Bair and Eskimo Jones.  Another video is for “No Love,” a song by Ez Stak Geez (featuring Rilky). In “No Love,” Ez addresses the plight of the streets and advises the youth to stay in school. Other rappers on the DVD spit hot bars sans a video. These artists include Pape and Jizzle.

Also on the DVD, G-Unit rapper Mazaradi Fox talks about everything from the music biz to Dumout, a character he created. R.E.A.L. Entertainment then interviews some locals, such as graphic designer Tank, who vents about local radio’s lack of support for artists in the area, and attorney Royce Morris, who gives legal advice. Aside from introducing raw talent, Talk of the Streets shows camaraderie among artists in the Burg as well as a movement for local music and businesses.
