Synopsis

For anyone who has dropped thousands on bling without giving so much as a second though as to where their flashy jewelry came from, the Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon, Paul Wall, and Tego Calderon take a trip to war-torn Sierra Leone to learn the true cost of materialistic excess. In the 1980s diamond jewelry became a stable of hip-hop culture, eventually evolving into a billion dollar industry. But what of the endless suffering endured by the miners, amputees, and child soldiers who have given life and limb for the "blood diamonds" that shimmer so lustrously under the brilliant lights which illuminate the stage? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
