I love documentaries that focus on African-Americans especially ones that showcase our achievements and lives. This particular series focused on the birth of hip hop and it’s shaped America’s culture and proven to have a big influence on society.

The 4 part series was very informative and I learned new things about one of the best genres of music, in my opinion. One interesting thing I learned while watching was that a white Jewish Harvard undergrad was the co-founder of The Source, one America’s leading hip hop magazines.

The documentary was full of shocking, informative, and real life facts that will show how much of an impact Hip Hop culture really holds on America.
