“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.”
