Our lives are often characterized by what we do, but perhaps nothing can be more defining than the way we face our own mortality. Robert Hunter was known as a pioneer of musical genre, a young father, avid digital enthusiast, alcoholic, and, finally, as a terminal cancer patient. When Hunter found out at age 35 that his time on earth was to be cut cruelly short, he decided not to retreat inwards but to use digital tools to share his physical, emotional and musical journey into uncharted territory. His fight was broadcast, primarily by Hunter himself, in a very public, networked, and an extraordinarily honest manner. What Hunter didn't expect was just how his broadcasts would motivate a musical community to come out and support him in surprising ways. For Hunter himself, cancer became a lens through which the important things in life and his past regrets came sharply into focus. In a compelling mixture of Ob Doc, video diary and music, HUNTER: FOR THE RECORD documents a man driven to change, of a digital native whose natural reaction to mortality was to leave a lasting digital and emotional imprint upon the world he left behind.
Still I Rise, the third posthumous release of "new" material by Tupac Shakur, is not surprisingly a mixed bag. Recorded in 1996 with the Outlawz, the disc at its best does showcase the power of 'Pac.
