“You’re Alright, Kid” is a documentary short about me (Michaelangelo Tumbarello aka Baje One) that was directed, shot, and edited by Reuben Atlas. It captures me around the time when I started Modern Shark and when me and Snaf released “A Miraculous Kind Of Machine”.
I have to be honest that even though I rap about myself all the time, and I put myself out there all the time, I still feel a little funny about being the subject of a documentary. When you rap, you kinda create your own narrative for who you are, you’re in control. I guess it can be hard to let go and allow yourself to see yourself the way that someone else sees you. (That sentence sounds mad confusing, but it makes sense).
Reuben Atlas is currently making a feature-length documentary film about The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. I’ve seen some of the footage and I know that it’s going to be amazing. Check out the film’s website for more info and a beautiful teaser. And stay updated by liking the film on facebook.
