DESCRIPTION:
(from FX's press release, December 2020) Hip Hop Uncovered will premiere on Friday, February 12, 2021 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and be available the next day on FX on Hulu. The six-part series will air two episodes each week. From executive producer Malcolm Spellman and Oscar(R) and Emmy(R)-winning production company Lightbox, comes Hip Hop Uncovered, an examination of a dying breed of power brokers who operate from the shadows of hip hop. Set against 40 years of music history, this six-part documentary series, directed by Rashidi Natara Harper, takes a deep dive into the paradox of America's criminalization of the genre and its fascination with the street culture that created it and still exists within it. Instead of telling the story of hip hop from the top down, Hip Hop Uncovered tells the story from the streets up, as it reveals the untold story of how America's streets helped shape hip hop culture from an expression of survival and defiance into music's most dominant genre.
