My all time favorite hip-hop documentary is Bazooka Tooth, which centers around the legendary alternative/abstract/indie hip-hop label Definitive Jux and the profoundly talented artists that defined its early formation. If you’re a fan of Cannibal Ox, El-P, Aesop Rock, Def Jux, or underground hip-hop in general, this is a must see. Bazooka Tooth was recorded back in 2001-2002 when Def Jux was first starting to really take off and Cannibal Ox had recently released the label’s all time best selling album The Cold Vein (in my top 10 favorite hip-hop albums).
