Inside Look Of @MassAppeal’s ‘Burn Motherfucker, Burn!’ w/Sacha Jenkins

This Friday, April 21 at 9pm EDT, Showtime Networks will premiere the MASS APPEAL documentary Burn Motherfucker, Burn! directed by Sacha Jenkins, the man who brought us Fresh Dressed. Released to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, the 90-minute doc explores the roots of civil unrest by examining the complicated relationship between the Los Angeles Police Department and the city’s black and Latin communities, tracing a through-line from the 1962 ransacking of a Los Angeles Nation of Islam mosque to the 1965 Watts riots, the rise of L.A. street gangs in the 1970s and 1980s, and the Rodney King beating in 1991.

A year later, on April 29, 1992, four LAPD officers were acquitted by a Simi Valley jury on charges of assault, lighting the fuse for the uprising that began that evening and continued for days.

In this clip, Jenkins shares his perspective on this project as a native of Queen, NYC, while Everlast and B-Real describe the surreal experience of seeing L.A. ablaze while they themselves were blazing high-grade herb and under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms.
