New Film: Kanye West, Paul Wall Delve into the Rotten Heart of Bling

By |

This week, Kanye West, Paul Wall, Jadakiss and Tego Calderon are heading to Sierra Leone to film "Bling: A Planet Rock." The documentary will focus on Sierra Leone's exploitative diamond trade and the damage caused by a decades-long civil war. The rappers will meet Sierra Leone's president, Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, visit diamond mines, and meet with the victims of the war. The documentary, by Raquel Cepeda and Article 19 Films, will air in early 2007 as part of VH1's "Rock Docs." Cepeda describes it as "a theatrical documentary that's sometimes satirical, but very accessible and palatable for people in our generation."
