Film Skool Rejekts "Midnight Movie" (Original Cut, 2008)


I received a trusty notification from Bandcamp that Cyrus The Great had re-released Midnight Movie on his channel and it brought me back to the late 2000s when the Film Skool Rejekts were releasing a ton of content. It started with DJ Prince passing me a copy of The Workprint, which put Future Joyner, Sheen Phillips and Cyrus the Great on my list of artists to watch. After that, they had Music For The B*tches, their mixtape tribute to EPMD in Mind Ya Business and an EP called Blood Circus, all of which pushed the envelope on creativity, witty wordplay and visual rap. While The Workprint is still my favorite project from them, I appreciate what each project brought to the table and they obviously helped Joyner pay his dues and become the artist that he is today. Let's look back on Midnight Movie - see if you can follow the concept & appreciate their artistic vision...
