We head to Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val that in­cluded a trailer for an up­com­ing documentary, per­for­mances by Rap­sody and Big Daddy Kane and MCM.

Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val is back for its 17th year for an­other full sea­son of par­ties pan­els and films that span doc­u­men­taries, thrillers, ro­mances, sci-fi and more. We kicked off our time at the fes­ti­val by head­ing to PUB­LIC Arts at the PUB­LIC Ho­tel in the LES for MCM's de­but of the first global teaser for The Remix: Hip Hop X Fash­ion Documentary.

The ex­clu­sive view­ing party payed homage to hip hop. The documentary hon­ored the cul­tural in­flu­ence of stylists such as Misa Hyl­ton who de­fined ’90s hip hop fash­ion by cre­at­ing some of the most iconic looks with top artists such as Lil’ Kim, Mary J. Blige, and Missy El­liot. The film's pro­ducer, Lisa Cortes and di­rec­tor Farah X talked about the up­com­ing documentary which will de­but in full, this fall.

The night's emcee and TV per­son­al­ity, Bevy Smith wel­comed a num­ber of per­form­ers who hit stage wear­ing styles for the up­com­ing MCM X PUMA col­lab­o­ra­tion that has yet to be re­leased. Paula We­in­sten of Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val said a few words about the im­por­tance of the film and pro­vid­ing recog­ni­tion to the ef­forts of those fea­tured in the film. DJ Olivia Dope and 9th Won­der spun through­out the night along with hip hop dancers that hit the stage. The night cul­mi­nated in two per­for­mances with this years 2 time Grammy nom­i­nated rap­per, Rap­sody and one of hip hop's found­ing fa­ther's Big Daddy Kane - all rock­ing the up­com­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion.
