As we’ve mentioned previously, after viewing the trailer a lot of us have been patiently waiting for the opportunity to watch Tragedy for some time now. Well, a few nights ago I had the honor of watching this film in it’s entirety at the H2O International Film Festival being held here in NYC. In case you don’t know, the doc revolves around the tumultuous life of Percy L. Chapman, aka Tragedy Khadafi, with the six-block housing project commonly referred to as Queensbridge serving as the backdrop. With commentary throughout the film from QB figures such as Marley Marl, Havoc (of Mobb Deep) and Capone (of CNN) amongst others, we get a glimpse into Trag’s upbringing and major influences. I don’t want to give away too much but throughout the film there are countless stories presented that capture the viewer’s attention, such as the touching account of the death of Tragedy’s mother, an uncomfortable Vibe Magazine interview and Khadafi’s reaction to the September 11th terrorist attacks. Much props to the director Booker Sim. Hopefully this film will be available soon on a wider scale, whether that be in theatres or on DVD. So if you have a chance to watch this, make sure you do!
