DVD Magazines are the newest trend of the Hip Hop industry. While they may not provide the same in depth content or hard-hitting questions as a regular publication, the DVD's are able to give you up close and personal coverage with your favorite artists. It is this interaction with artists in their normal surroundings that has made these releases so intriguing. One of the newest DVD Magazines is Hustle Up, which has just released its premiere issue. Like those that have come before it, the DVD lets you find out what your favorite emcee or producer is like on a day-to-day basis.

What Hustle Up DVD brings to the table is pure entertainment. Their first issue is never filled with a dull moment, as they take you inside the world of T.I., Cassidy, Slim Thug, Rodney Jerkins, Young Guru, and Chink Santana. Slim Thug offers the most memorable appearance, as Hustle Up follows the Houston native around for an entire day. On that particular day, Slim was doing press for a variety of radio and TV stations, like Much Music and BET. Along the way Slim runs through his own story, and gives the viewer some insight on how he got to the position he is in today. Similarly, the Hustle Up crew was able to get producer extraordinaire Rodney Jerkins, as they take a ride in his custom limo around New York City.

The self-proclaimed "hustler" Cassidy also allows the crew to get some footage of him in the studio. While Cassidy's arrogant commentary teeters on annoying, he makes up for it with a nice freestyle session. The segment with Young Guru, the most famous Hip Hop engineer, also impresses. Guru drops some knowledge on the Hip Hop game, giving you a face behind the name.

Hustle Up DVD Magazine sets the standards for all other DVD's to follow with its premiere issue. The DVD is definitely worth your purchase, as it's properly edited, flows smoothly, and is entertaining throughout. For more information, visits
