Hip-Hop Is Taking Over Netflix
Hip Hop culture grows every day. In today’s America, Hip-Hop is currently the most streamed music. It is no surprise that a show about Hip-Hop will be taking over the biggest T.V. streaming network Netflix. Netflix is set to drop a Hip-Hop series titled “Rapture.” Check out the trailer above.
The show will feature many familiar faces in Hip-Hop. Artists such as Logic, G-Eazy, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Nas, 2 Chainz and more will have their own episodes. The show is going to take us through the personal lives of these artists and possibly show us the music making process for each of them. The show will be produced by Mass Appeal and directed by Sacha Jenkins. The director had this to say:
“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,” Jenkins said. “It is a great honor for Mass Appeal to work with Netflix to produce our new series Rapture. 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.”
Stay tuned as we await more details on the show.
