Released in 1973 by founding member of The Last Poets, Jalal Nuriddin, under the name Lightnin' Rod, Hustlers Convention tells the story of Sport and Spoon - two young hustlers who attend the eponymous convention, only to get tangled up in a financial disagreement that leads to a shootout, police chase and finishes with Sport on Death Row, weighing up what it all means. Taking its title from the album, Hustlers Convention the film will blend archive and photos with interviews and use unique animated sequences set to the album. We will see the Hustlers Convention in its wider social context and Jalal's personal story as one of rap's undisputed pioneers.
