Urban Movie Channel (UMC) is bringing viewers an exciting yet educational scope of titles in celebration of Black Music Month. Beginning on Friday, June 2, 2017, UMC's Black Music Month collection will include films featuring some of the culture's most prominent and beloved entertainers. Titles from the collection include the Damon Dash production Welcome to Blakroc, the documentary The Industry from Russell Simmons' Hip Hop Speaks Series, and the untold story of the legendary Sugarhill Gang, I Want My Name Back. From documentaries about late hip hop music greats Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., and Jam Master Jay; to concert performances from Earth Wind and Fire, Jimi Hendrix, and Unlocking the Truth; and little known stories of black musicians in history such as the enslaved pianist Thomas Greene Bethune and Queen of the Trumpet, Valaida Snow, UMC is the destination for the best of Black Music Month programming.

As part of UMC's tribute to Tupac Shakur, UMC will host a special UMC All Access Facebook Live interview with Leila Steinberg, the artist mentor and first manager for Tupac Shakur. A veteran music industry executive who has worked with Atlantic Records, Sony, Def Jam, Interscope and more, Steinberg first met Tupac in the Spring of 1988, when he entered The Microphone Sessions, her writing workshop that develops spoken word, poetry, musicals, hip hop music, pop, dance, and more. Currently, Leila manages rapper Earl Sweatshirt, formerly of Odd Future. Follow @WatchUMC for the Facebook Live date announcement and be sure to watch the documentaries Tupac Vs. and Tupac: Before I Wake from UMC's Black Music Month collection.

The celebration continues on Friday, June 9, 2017 as UMC presents American Beatboxer, an award-winning documentary that follows the experience of the first American Beatbox Championship. The inaugural event, which took place in Brooklyn, NY, brought together beatboxers and beatbox fans of all races from across the country and featured a judging panel of hip hop music legends Rahzel the "Godfather of Noyze", Masai Electro, Parrish Smith of EPMD, and Jarobi White of A Tribe Called Quest. Directed by Manauvaskar Kublall, produced by Richard McKeown, and executive produced by Chesney Snow - co-founder of the American Beatboxing Championship, the film is included in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum & Archive and documents one of the most neglected genres of hip hop music culture, acknowledging beatboxing's rightful place in Hip Hop history, as well as its establishment as an American art form.

ESPN Films Presents DOC & DARRYL 30 for 30 Premiere

ESPN Films Presents DOC & DARRYL 30 for 30 Premiere

0
Radio Facts: doc_darrylWith the official red carpet premiere of ESPN Films Presents Doc & Darryl going down June 29th at the Joseph Urban Theater in New York, fans won't have to wait too long to see this masterpiece.  The actual film will be available for fans to watch on ESPN July 14th.  This one should be a classic. Directors Judd Apatow (“Trainwreck,” “This Is 40”) and Michael Bonfiglio (“You Don’t Know Bo”) will explore the lives and careers of former New York Mets superstars, the young flame thrower, Dwight “Doc” Gooden and feared power hitter Darryl Strawberry. When they were good, they were great; the biggest stars on a team that captured the imagination of New York City and won the 1986 World Series. But when life spiraled out of control for both men, Gooden and Strawberry inadvertently broke the hearts of Mets fans. “They were going to be our guys for years,” laments Jon Stewart in this evocative yet searing 30 for 30 documentary. Reunited at a diner in Queens, the pitcher and the power hitter look back on the glory days of the mid-80s and the harrowing nights that turned them from surefire Hall of Famers into prisoners of their own addictions. Listening to Doc talk about missing the World Series parade down the Canyon of Heroes, or Darryl counseling others at his ministry, you can only wish that these two very different men had not followed the same destructive path. https://youtu.be/bohuS2CZJys
Netflix Finds Fans of Orange is the New Black Are Repeat Offenders

Netflix Finds Fans of Orange is the New Black Are Repeat Offenders

[caption id="attachment_172796" align="alignnone" width="600"]Netflix Finds Fans of Orange is the New Black Are Repeat Offenders (PRNewsFoto/Netflix) Netflix Finds Fans of Orange is the New Black Are Repeat Offenders (PRNewsFoto/Netflix)[/caption] BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Netflix reveals Orange is the New Black is one of its most re-watched original series. Examining viewing in over 190 countries, Netflix found more than half (53%)* of Orange viewers have re-watched at least one full season of the acclaimed series since its debut in 2013. Not surprisingly, this re-watching behavior peaks each June in anticipation of the new season, this year being no exception. In advance of the Orange is the New Black season 4 debut - arriving worldwide Friday, June 17 - Netflix also surveyed** fans around the world to see how they plan to prepare for their return to Litchfield. Of viewers polled, nearly a quarter (21%) plan to re-watch the previous season while 41% plan to re-watch the entire series - all 36 episodes. They're eager to serve their time too with 54% planning to re-watch this weekend or sooner, and fans are even willing to give up making their bed (30%), cleaning the house (36%) and cooking (10%) in order to have more time to watch. Overall, most plan to re-watch without incriminating others - 36% prefer to re-watch solo, 8% with their pets and 12% with a table full of snacks (be careful with the pie). Those who prefer to have partners in crime will re-watch with their significant other (25%) or friends (14%). The majority of re-watching lockdowns will take place in the living room (43%) followed by the bedroom (41%) - no one chose the SHU. The art of re-watching takes both a practical and emotional form. Top reasons for re-watching include looking for possible foreshadowing in previous storylines (25%) and reliving moments with favorite characters (29%). However, for others (25%) it's as simple as Orange is the New Black being their favorite show and they just can't get enough. For those who only have time for a shorter sentence - like the 23% of respondents who plan to re-watch just a few episodes - Netflix also released the series' most re-watched episodes. As expected, viewers prefer to re-indulge in the last three episodes of a season, but the one that remains supreme is, of course, Season 1, Episode 1 - you never forget your first time: Season 1: Episode 1 - "I wasn't ready" Sentenced to fifteen months for a crime committed in her youth, Piper Chapman leaves her supportive fiance Larry for her new home: a woman's prison. Episode 12 - "Fool me once" Painful truths reorient several relationships and careers: Pennsatucky feels disrespected by Piper; Larry gives a revealing radio interview. Episode 13 - "Can't fix crazy" Red's scheme to reclaim her kitchen backfires; the inmates stage a Christmas pageant; Piper's plans unravel even as she realizes her life is in jeopardy. Season 2: Episode 11 - "Take a break from your values" Piper is shocked at an unexpected change in her status; Soso's hunger strike attracts new support that takes on a religious fervor. Episode 12 - "It was the change" Tensions run high as a prison power outage forces several issues to come to light; Piper finds herself compromised and is forced to think on her feet. Episode 13 - "We have manners. We're polite" Several futures hang in the balance as the inmates face and confront their worst nightmares: Life will never be the same again. Season 3: Episode 11 - "We can be heroes" Caputo and Piper confront labor issues. A miracle occurs in Norma's group. Crazy Eyes' erotica winds up in the hands of the staff. Episode 12 - "Don't make me come back there" Daya goes into labor. Sophia suffers a hate crime. Stella helps Piper with a business snag. Taystee takes on a new role. Episode 13 - "Trust no bitch" Miracles and conversions occur, but Piper and Caputo know that some situations can't be dealt with through spiritual means. METHODOLOGY *Data reflective of global accounts who have completed watching Orange is the New Black and have re-watched at least one season of the series. **The survey was conducted by Google Consumer Surveys, June 2, 2016 - June 10, 2016 and based on 1,613 responses. The sample was the national adult internet population in the US, Mexico, UK and Canada. Survey respondents must have confirmed their intent to watch and prepare for season 4 of Orange is the New Black to participate. Overall RMSE score is 4.84%.
