Documentary Tells Count Bass D’s Story
Filmmaker Chris Fiorentini makes a documentary about producer/rapper Count Bass D, one of his favorite semi-obscure hip-hop artists.
It ain’t easy being Bass D. That’s what filmmaker Chris Fiorentini discovered when he set out to do a documentary about producer/rapper Count Bass D, one of his favorite semi-obscure hip-hop artists.
A multi-instrumentalist — and weirdo before being weird was en vogue– the 39-year-old Count Bass D released his first album Pre-Life Crisis on Columbia way back in ’95. Since then Bass D released a number of independent albums — building a lauded but largely unknown catalog of music.
He’s sacrificed both family and finances for his music; the short film paints the picture of an artist committed to his art no matter what the cost or pitfalls.
