Once in a while, a piece of media comes along that you have big up before you've even watched it. A friend of mine told me about this new documentary Soul Power, that features footage from the concert before Mohammed Ali's fight in Zaire. I'm talking, Bill Withers, Celia Cruz, James Brown...this golden nugget is like a classic version of Dave Chappelle's Block Party. I haven't seen it yet, but by the time you read this, best believe somebody will be tearing my ticket and selling me popcorn kernels because I won't be waiting much longer for this treasure.
