The Four-Part Series Hip-Hop Evolution Is Now On Netflix
Stream all four episodes now.
Earlier this year, a new documentary series called Hip-Hop Evolution debuted at Toronto's Hot Docs Festival. Created by the team behind Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey, and hosted by rapper Shad, the series traces the genre's first 20 years through interviews with luminaries like Grandmaster Flash (watch a clip of that discussion above). All four episodes were aired on HBO, but if you missed out you can watch the entire run on Netflix right now.
Back in March, director Darby Wheeler told The FADER it was his hope that "even the most knowledgeable hip-hop heads will be entertained, informed, and surprised by what Hip-Hop Evolution has to offer.”
