Interview: Coodie & Chike To Go "Over The Network" For The Tribeca Film Festival

#DXCLUSIVE: Hip Hop video iconoclasts to speak of "A Kid Of Coney Island".

New York, NY – It's a cold, cold, rainy afternoon in the City of New York, and Coodie & Chike are flitting between interviews in a co-working space most of Bryant Park. The air as much as the air in the Tribeca Film Festival — is one of great excitement: the couple in the documentary film, A Boy from Coney Island, is making quite the success at the festival, and the duo could not be more happy.

New Orleans native Chike Ozah — talkative, full of grace, and animated — agree with his compatriot. "We're definitely blessed, and it feels good to see all our hard work pay off and be so well received by our peers. I tell you. We have worked hard, and we don't take it for granted."
