For Chris by Marley

even though chris iijima loved to visit the westcoast and eventually relocated to hawaii, there is no denying that he was new york city to the core.  having been born and bred in manhattan it was only necessary to go out there to shoot for the film.
while shooting some b-roll in union square, a street artist named marley stepped to me to see if i was from the local news.  after i explained to him i was doing a documentary on the singer chris iijima he offered to spit a couple of verses for the film...
the next time your in union square you should check marley out on the corner of 14th street & 4th ave in front of the virgin megastore.
