Directed by Peter Spirer | 1997

Featuring interviews with over 80 artists—including Tupac, Busta Ryhmes, Chuck D, Dr. Dre, Nas, the Wu-Tang Clan, and Lauryn Hill—this comprehensive documentary charts the history of rap, from its origins in the mid-70s Bronx, to the rise of West Coast gangsta rap, to its emergence as a multi-billion dollar industry, while tackling controversial issues like sexism, violence, and the commercialization of hip-hop culture.
