Red Hot + Cool : Stolen Moments Documentary & Music

Various Stolen Moments Red Hot + CoolThis past weekend, I got a chance to watch Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool, a Hip Hop documentary and album that centers around the disease: AIDS. I was taken aback and ushered right back into this film, produced in 1994 — representing honesty, love, hate, pain, politics, culture, homophobia, and art. For a moment, I wanted to sit back and just listen to the music from the good ole’ days of Hip Hop — when shyt had meaning and Little Wayne and A$AP Rocky were not included to the party!

There are many in Generation X that are no longer with us due to this deadly disease and it has silently killed an entire generation of African Americans that we (I in particular) never knew or heard of as it pertains to their life story. To tell the riveting piece of history during the 90s, when Hip Hop was a movement and stood for something, some of the best in Hip Hop paid tribute to their people, culture, and future.

According the documentary website it says of the film, “Produced by The Red Hot Organization for the Independent Television Service (ITVS), Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool is the fifth in a series of AIDS benefit musical projects, and the first to air on public television. A fresh and creative concert special, Stolen Moments melds the classic genre of jazz with today’s hip hop featuring the best artists from both worlds together for the first time. But Stolen Moments is more than just a landmark centerstage music event. It’s a compelling video montage of what’s happening in communities of color around the difficult issues brought on by the stunning rise in AIDS cases in recent years. At a time when media interest in AIDS has ebbed, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool is bound to refuel the debate.”

Some of the artists featured in this documentary: Guru, The Pharcyde, Digable Planets, Me’Shell N’degeOcello, The Roots, The Last Poets, MC Solaar and many more. There are also people who were  dealing with the deadly disease during the 90s that give personal accounts of their struggle with the disease.

If you’re interested in going back in time and applying what can be today to help the future generation with regard to this disease get ready for a lesson in life and some tips to live by!
