August 23, 2010 Sync Placement No Comments

The sequel to Spike Lee’s Katrina documentary When The Levees Broke: A Requiem In Four Acts, titled, If God Is Willing And Da Creek Don’t Rise, will air tonight and tomorrow on HBO in 2 parts. Part I will air tonight, Monday, August 23rd, and Part II on Tuesday, August 24th. This documentary marks the five year anniversary of when Hurricane Katrina first formed on August 23rd, 2005.

The documentary features K. Gates’ “Who Dat”. You might remember, K Gates (aka The New Orleans Savior) recorded “Black & Gold (Who Dat!!!)” a month before the Saints went on to win the Super Bowl earlier this year. K Gates rhymes on top of The Orchard’s very own Ying Yang Twins’ “Halftime (Stand Up & Get Crunk!)” beat, which played after every Saints touchdown during their championship season.

Make sure to catch the four-hour documentary tonight and tomorrow on HBO.
