The Blackout (Rucker Park, Documentary)

In the summer of 2003, the Entertainers Basketball Classic (EBC) in Harlem New York took the nation by storm, and put the world of street ball on notice. Bringing the biggest stars of Hip Hop, sports and politics together in one place. Highlighted  by Hip Hop rivals Jay Z and Fat Joe, along with their star studded teams, EBC was set to have the most anticipated championship in street ball history. Thousands filled the street of Harlem, and with standing room at Rucker park the lights went out, and never came back on. The largest blackout in U.S History crippled Manhattan and EBC Championship game. The Blackout sorts though the gossip, rumors and urban legends as it turns the lights back on at Rucker park and retells the story of the biggest street ball game that never was. In unrelated news, Happy Born Day to me! Another year in the books, I'm glad I made it this far.
