Netflix documentary on the history of hip-hop culture coming March 30

As I’ve written and said many times, hip-hop is the driving force in culture these days, especially in the United States. (Canada is still a rock-based nation, but hip-hop isn’t far behind.) If you’re not up on your hip-hop history, you risk being left behind.

Come March 30, Netflix will begin running Rapture, an eight-episode documentary on the subject. Artists appearing in the series include Logi, G-Eazy, Nas, 2 Chainz and Just Blaze.

Here’s a trailer.
