Expected to Attend: Director Mike Todd, Producer Quenell Jones

Hustlers Convention is, in the words of The Hollywood Reporter, a hip-hop history lesson that feels at times like a rap cousin of Searching for Sugar Man. Director Mike Todd (Joe Frazier: When the Smoke Clears) goes in search of the artist behind the influential 1973 album Hustlers Convention. Interviews include George Clinton, Fab 5 Freddy, Ice-T and Chuck D as the film builds to the album’s first live performance by Jalal Nuriddin aka Lightnin’ Rod.
