Ben Affleck and Slaine, just some good ol boys [Interview]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Interesting A&E story for hip hop. This is the stuff that a music writer in some Austin, Texas newsroom nuts his pants for, a comprehensive entertainment piece. You got the Boston native and Hollywood star in Affleck securing street credibility for his blockbuster whilst handing out a small but ever so meaningful role to Charlestown, Boston rapper Slaine. Apparently Slaine nailed the audition, and it was all due to Ben reading a piece about Slaine in the Herald I believe. I have my issues with Slaine lately as a rapper, but I’m happy to see him expanding as an artist, even if it is just one Boston white boy to another.

By the way, this is an interesting piece in the Globe on how the movie is shitting on Charlestown somewhat recklessly. The town is a nice place to live?
