DJ Yella To Be Featured In Vh1's Upcoming Los Angeles Riots Documentary

Affiliates from N.W.A. and Da Lench Mob join Rodney King to come forward to help VH1 viewers look back 20 years at a street uprising.

Vh1 announced this morning that following their Ice-T executive produced Rock Doc on crack cocaine, Planet Rock, that they are producing another Rock Doc, this time on the 1992 Los Angeles Riots. Under the working title of Uprising: Hip-Hop & The L.A. Riots, the April, 2012 documentary will feature commentary from the likes of N.W.A.'s DJ Yella, Sir Jinx and Too $hort, all West Coast artists active at the time of the riots.

Additionally, Nas, Big Boi and KRS-One are confirmed participants in the film that will also feature Rodney King. Rodney King's 1991 police-beating and resulting LAPD acquittal was instrumental in the Los Angeles Riots taking places.

Earlier this year, Inglewood, California emcee Thurz (a/k/a Thurzday) made an album, L.A. Riot, inspired by the events surrounding the events.
