Brinson's "GodChaserz The Documentary" Drops This Spring on Streaming Platforms
GodChaserz The Documentary, coming this spring to YouTube TV, Google TV, Apple TV and other streaming platforms, is the inspirational account of award-winning hip-hop artist Brinson and the creation of the independent record label, GodChaserz Entertainment.
Bold and gritty, with a style that's every bit as street as hip-hop itself, GodChaserz The Documentary weaves performances, music videos, interviews with artists and feedback from industry insiders into a fast-paced mosaic that pulses with the passion of their unapologetically God-powered music.
The film features the journeys and the talents of five independent rappers who combined forces and changed the lives of their listeners - and maybe even the trajectory of faith-based rap. Brinson and labelmates ReadyWriter, Cstraight, Oatmeal and Nazarite give audiences an inside look at how they fell in love with hip-hop and what happened when they injected their music with their faith. Appearing like pops of insight throughout the documentary are glimpses into serendipitous - and almost metaphysical - moments from Brinson's youth that kept nudging him toward his true calling.
GodChaserz The Documentary began as an attempt to make a social media short to celebrate GodChaserz Entertainment's 15-year anniversary, Brinson explained. But then the COVID-19 lockdown hit, and time stood still.
"I virtually connected with co-director (and longtime collaborator) Will Thomas to dream up what it would take to produce a more in-depth, visual narrative that would document this history," Brinson said.
The final result was culled from more 35 hours of interviews with GodChaserz artists, hip-hop music fans and genre gatekeepers like DJ Wade-O, Marcus Hall and James "Trig" Rosseau, Sr., among many others.
"One story of faith led to another, with all pointing back to the ultimate redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit," Brinson said.
GodChaserz The Documentary has already been honored with 64 film festival awards, validating what Brinson and other holy hip-hop artists already know: that there's a market for music that transforms souls.
Perhaps Brinson's lyrics from his song "Don't Rap No More" say it best: "If you ain't tryin' to win souls, put that mic down. Don't rap no more!"
