A musician is interviewed in a studio about the Afrofocus project and the role music plays in his life (he mentions being a bass player at one point so this may be Hector Gayle). He is asked about the difficulties faced by black musicians and what barriers are faced by young unsigned musicians. He also talks about the trend for 'slap' lyrics which are degrading to women. The next section is a walking shot into the music studio housed in the Sam Sharpe Project in Wolverhampton (an exterior of the Chubb Building is also seen) and preparations inside the studio for a recording. A voice over for the edited tape follows.
