Jung von Matt erzählt für die MTV Masters die Geschichte des Rock ’n Roll auf sehr typografische, künstlerische Art. Die Geschichte von Lemmy Kilmister und Curtis Jackson.
HL. Lemmy Kilmister
Canada in the spring of 1975. Thrown out of the band because of his problems with drugs, Ian Fraser Kilmister has a decision to make. Withdrawal or excess? He can also do it without the stuff, but his songs miss it sorely. At the same rate as his passion for music is dwindling, his collection of Nazi toys is growing. The warts on his face confirm his place on the margins of society. That’s what relaxes his attitude to drugs. He starts to drink again early, but it’s too late for a career as a rock ’n‘ roller. Canada in spring 1975: Lemmy Kilmister seeks advice in making his decision from Jack Daniels.
HL. 50 Cent
New York in May 2000. Curtis Jackson needs to finally make a decision. Rap or crack? In financial terms, there’s something to be said for sticking with dealing. He’s also taking kids off the streets by doing it. The fact that he’s sending them straight underground, however, bothers him. But nobody wants to hear the songs in which he wants to deal with that it. So, increasingly, he lets his fists do the talking. Until one day somebody answers him with an automatic weapon. He learned how to put up with a lot while in the slammer. But nine bullets are too many, even for him. New York in May 2000: Curtis Jackson opts for rap, with starting capital of 50 cents
