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.

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.
