If you haven’t watched Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives yet, you’re slipping. It’s one of the great hip-hop documentaries, and one that seems to have satisfied even the most ardent backpack rap fundamentalists in its running time. I bet there’s still a ton of stuff that never made the final cut though. Because it’s 2016 and we watch everything digitally (though, with Vimeo removing UK opportunities for VOD for the film and then those creepy proxy Google Chrome apps ceasing to work, it’s been a challenge to get this film legally online here), we don’t get the those DVD extras that can be a real trove of uncommercial, uncut geek trivia when it comes to documentaries online. That means that hard copies aren’t entirely irrelevant. Fortunately, the DVD is online at Fat Beats now and it’s got a full-length commentary track and extra scenes — it’s all regions (unlike the complexities of a digital purchase) and hopefully it’s going to be in some other stores worldwide during the coming months.
If you missed out on any of the cinema screenings, you can watch a couple of the post-film Q&As in their entirety via the YouTube videos below.
