The Rhyme & Reason Anniversary

20 years ago, the world became overly fascinated with a culture and genre of #music that started budding into the global powerhouse it is today, with a Hip-Hop Documentary called Rhyme & Reason.

Rhyme & Reason was one of the first documentaries that felt organic, real and respectful to the beginning as well as the current state. From the interviews freestyles and the soundtrack the majority agreed that this was the culture represented the right way. It was also one of the first to highlight rappers beyond the 5 Burroughs of New York.

It connected the foundation and some of it’s pioneers with some of the new fresh, new and hungry faces that were set to close out the 90’s strong. That’s something a lot of docs don’t do today and hip-hop is over 40 years old now.

For me, this was one of the first things that let me know hip-hop wasn’t going anywhere and that it truly was inspiring people all over the world.

Happy Anniversary to The Rhyme & Reason DVD and Soundtrack
