InstaRapFlix 21: The All Access Show

Ok, some more weird, random hip-hop shit on Netflix. There's one 20 minute video on there called The All Access Show (Netflix rating: 1.5 stars). It seems to be related to the All Access series of "DVD magazines" (which Netflix also carries, but not for Instant Viewing); but I guess this is a special or something. Anyway, it's only 20 minutes (even shorter when you discount the credits) and nobody's bothered to review it or anything. So of course I had to watch it!

So, right off we got our host, Kraze, telling us he's got some special guests and what-not. First up is a music video by DJ Khaled (alternatively dubbed both "We Takin' Over" and "We Taken Over" on-screen... I hope for Khaled's sake, it's the first one!). It's the censored radio version, by the way; so about 50% of the song is performed in mime. And even though they cut it off just as Lil Wayne's verse starts, that still takes us more than 1/4 of the way through the movie!

Then we get a little behind-the-scenes footage of a Redman video ("Put It Down") for another five minutes. Shit, we're already halfway done! Well, next is another music video: "Wipe Me Down" by Trill Family. If you haven't heard it, it's one of the most annoying songs ever. Finally, we get a little interview with Lloyd, padded out with a couple clips from his music videos.

And that's the whole thing. I don't understand, was this sold as a purchasable DVD all by itself? The actual All Access DVDs are like a proper 2 hours. And I can't find this on Amazon or anyplace else on the 'net. Anyway, fuck it. There's nothing worth watching here anyway, except possibly the Lloyd interview if you're a serious fan of his. Otherwise, it's a waste of time. But not very much time, at least.
