Hip Hop is one of the most popular music genre nowadays. But it wasn’t always the case. In the history of music, there have been periods when music completely changed the world. For example, the way the Beetles shaped our society in the 60s is extraordinary.

In the late 80s and early 90s, however, a new music genre was on the horizon. And that is hip hop. In the beginning, many viewed hip hop as a gangster and ghetto music. But hip hop is much more than that.

You can look at hip hop as a philosophy of life. Famous artists like 2pac, Dre, Notorious Big, and so many more, they changed the perception of the young people back in the days. And while they had songs with aggressive lyrics, they also sang about love, society, poverty, and equal rights for everyone.

This documentary takes a look at how hip hop evolved over the years, and how people have grasped the music genre. Like it or not, hip hop has become part of our DNA in one way or another.
