"UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots" PDF Print E-mail

It has been 20 years since the L.A. Riots, the four days of unrest, looting and rage that paralyzed Los Angeles and sent racial shockwaves throughout the country. After decades of racial tension in South Central Los Angeles, VH1's Emmy Award-winning "VH1 Rock Docs" franchise explores the connection between the violence manifested on the streets during the 1992 riots and the rage expressed in Hip Hop by NWA, Dr. Dre, Ice T, and Ice Cube among others with VH1's "UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots" premiering Tuesday, May 1 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.

Executive produced and narrated by Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg and directed by Mark Ford, "UPRISING: Hip Hop and The L.A. Riots" tells the story of the most destructive riot in American history and is scored by some of the most iconic and controversial hip hop tracks of all time, such as NWA's "F Tha Police" and Body Count's "Cop Killer." With definitive first-hand accounts and exclusive rare footage that was locked away and hasn't been seen until now, the documentary gives an inside look at the four fiery days that left 53 people dead and over 12,000 arrested, "UPRISING" is told through the diverse perspective of the rappers, musicians, police officers and victims who lived through the landmark L.A. Riots in April, 1992. Viewers will also witness never-before-heard stories from well known figures and Hip Hop artists who were affected by or actual participants in the riots, including: Rodney King, Arsenio Hall, Ice T, Professor Todd Boyd (USC), Connie Rice (Civil Rights attorney), John Singleton, Too Short, KRS-One, Nas and Henry Watson (one of the "LA Four" convicted of beating Reginald Denny) and many more.

After making its successful debut and receiving rave reviews at the SXSW Film Festival this past March "UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots," puts a searing spotlight on race relations, revisits Hip Hop's warning of what was to come and documents the turbulent days of the riot with first hand accounts from residents that were caught in the cross hairs.

VH1's Emmy Award-winning Rock Docs are feature-length documentaries that tell unique stories of artists and music from a wide range of genres, styles and musical perspectives. "UPRISING: Hip Hop and the LA Riots" is executive produced by Mark Ford and Kevin Lopez for Creature Films and executive produced by Brad Abramson, Stephen Mintz, Shelly Tatro and Jeff Olde for VH1.

Cissy Houston: ‘I Did The Best I Could’ With Daughter Whitney Houston PDF Print E-mail
Written by By Wendy Carpenter at Yahoo

In her first interview since daughter Whitney Houston died almost two months ago, Cissy Houston says she did "the best" she could raising her, and she is "very proud" of her.

On Thursday, Houston returned to the location of her daughter's funeral, New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., a symbolic gesture for her first public speaking appearance. The church is also where Whitney Houston awed the congregation with her prodigious singing as a child.

"I'm very proud of my daughter," Houston said. "She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here ... she was a very wonderful person."

Whitney Houston's death on Feb. 11 was ruled as an accidental drowning -- in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton Hotel suite the night before the Grammys -- though it was determined that heart disease and cocaine contributed as well.

"I know I did the best I could. ... I don't blame myself," Houston said of her daughter. "I know I did the best I could for everything."

"I have my moments ..." Houston, a mother of three, responded when asked how she's dealing with losing her only daughter. "I'm not there yet ... I don't think I'm any more courageous than anyone else."

Houston, a Grammy Award—winning soul and gospel singer, also says there's one rumor that is completely false.

"Whitney did not die broke ... she's not broke. None of that crap."

It wasn't the first time Houston tried to help her famous daughter.

In a 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Whitney Houston claimed it was her mother who fought to save her from her substance addiction.

"I'm not losing you to Satan," Whitney recalled her mother telling her. "I'm not doing this. I want my daughter back. I want you back."

Cissy Houston was "hysterical" after her daughter's death, Perez Hilton reported, and she said as much in a statement released at the time: "We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Whitney. This is an unimaginable tragedy and we will miss her terribly. We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from her fans and friends."

The sentiment was representative of the close relationship Cissy Houston and her daughter had. Journalist Jawn Murray told FOXNews.com that their connection was comparable to that of Whitney Houston's situation with her own daughter, , which was "amazingly close."

"They had a relationship that really resembled the relationship that Whitney Houston had with her own mother, Cissy Houston," said Murray, who interviewed Whitney Houston. "Whitney loved her daughter. Bobbi Kristina was her only child and her pride and joy. Because of that, she treasured her."
