Everyone knows Hip-hop was born in New York City, but now the expansion of the culture is global. A new documentary series by Netflix is set to showcase how hip hop culture drives global pop culture. With appearances by Nas, T.I. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, 2 Chainz, Dave East, and G-Easy, Just Blaze and more, Rapture will give a glimpse into the lives of rappers. Highlighting their family and friends, experiences in the studio and placing the viewer on tour with the rappers.
“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 of Mass Appeal, the team behind the documentary.
“It is a great honor for Mass Appeal to work with Netflix to produce our new series Rapture Jenkins added. “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.” Directed by a team of directors including Jenkins, Ben Selkow, Zana Lawrence and Geete Gandbhir, the eight-episode documentary premieres on March 30 on Netflix.
