Movie Info

While Jim Jones's 2004 debut, ON THE WAY TO CHURCH, built a darkly surreal world befitting a man whose name and religious references recall a maniacal 1970s mass murderer, the Dipset member's second solo record, HARLEM: DIARY OF A SUMMER, is a bit disarming in its hooky brightness. In fact, the title-track ode to Jones's home neighborhood, with its breezy jazz hook and friendly spirit, is a positive beacon of light.Jones's voice, dripping as it always is with a feeling of impending doom, pairs in a wonderfully grotesque way with the buoyant beats behind him, whether he's boasting over a heavy bass ("Baby Girl"), eulogizing atop a classic old-school beat ("Tupac Joint"), or rapping about a mix of desire and betrayal in a unique sample of the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets" ("Summer With Miami"). This dual-disc presentation of the album includes two music videos and a documentary.more
