This week on Black on Black Cinema, the guys return to announce the next film, the 1999 comedy "Life" starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. The film follows two guys who get setup on a murder charge by a crooked cop during the prohibition era. The two men are sent to jail for life and work to prove their innocence while driving each other crazy. The random topic of the week is just that, completely random. With not much to chat about this week, Jay and Micah just talk about getting older, parenting, and more.

DJ Soul Sister on The Meters' "Rejuvenation" (1974)
The Meters helped change the New Orleans sonic landscape with their funky records and signature "second line" rhythms and in 1974, they released the heater _Rejuvenation_. The biggest difference on this record: vocals. Most of the members got a chance to flex their vocal and instrumental talents. This change up proved to be successful, becoming one of the group's most influential records and was heavily sampled all throughout 80s and 90s hip-hop. DJ Soul Sister AKA The Queen of Rare Groove, joins Oliver and Morgan to discuss the funkiness of The Meters, the New Orleans music scene, and what it's like to DJ at George Clinton's birthday.
