I couldn't pass this one up.‚  15 year-old Priscilla Diaz-- a.k.a. P-Star-- has been in the music business since she was 9, with the backing (pushing?) of her dad/manager, Jesse. Daughter and dad were in town this week to promote‚  P-Star Rising, a documentary about her, um, early years. Filmmaker Gabriel Noble shot his first footage when Priscilla was nine.‚  In a packed New York club.‚  At midnight.‚  At the time, the family was living in a shelter. She's now a regular on The Electric Company.‚  The film screens on public TV on Feb. 9. Luis interviewed P-Star, her dad, and Noble yesterday, and he couldn't let them leave without getting P-Star to drop a freestyle. He thinks she's the real deal, and he knows a thing or two about freestyle.‚  Decide for yourself: [audio:/sites/default/files/archives/blogs//SNIPPET_P-Star-in-Effect1.mp3|titles=SNIPPET_P Star in Effect2] Well?
