Guilty Or Innocent Of Using The N Word?The Hip-hop film, Guilty Or Innocent Of Using The N Word, directed by B. Malkani is premiering in London next month. The controversial documentary, which was recently sponsored by the city of Wilmington, (Delaware, USA) investigates questions around the N word that we often discuss among ourselves. The film breaks down the word chronologically from the history of the word (nigger) all the way up to Hip-Hop's influence on the acceptance and commercialization (nigga).
 
Guest appearances in the documentary include M1 from Dead Prez, Grouchy Greg, CEO of Allhiphop.com, The Last Emperor, up and coming rapper Marchitect and many others.
