book and lyrics by Jerome Sable & Eli Batalion, music bySable, Batalion & Joe Barrucco

J.O.B. THE HIP-HOPERA spins around Hoover Records, the producer of the biggest, baddest hip-hop in the west. Here label president J. Hoover is pitted against his right hand man Job in a test of loyalty and friendship. Meanwhile in the jingle department, it's MC Cain against his brother and fellow rapper MC Abel in their struggle for success. It's the Old (School) Testament retold as an allegory of contemporary corporate life in the music biz. Two stories. Two turntables. Ready? Remix...

Co-directed by Stefan Novinski and Hassan Christopher.
