The documentary series is directed by Sacha Jenkins, Ben Selkow, Geeta Gandbhir, and Zana Lawrence, and is scheduled to premiere March 30. Eight episodes and will focus on the evolution of rap and rap culture, as well as the personal and professional lives of the artists.
“Way back, when hip-hop culture was in its gestational phase, the powerful message therein didn’t go much further than the five boroughs of New York City. Today, rap music is the heartbeat of Mother Earth, and Netflix is the embodiment of the eyes from which she sees,” said Sacha Jenkins. “We’ve been telling hip-hop stories since ’96, and as natives, we feel it is our duty to do the movement justice. Rapture is bangin’. Straight up.”
