Chuck D Reveals New Hip-Hop Docuseries
29 Jul 2022
The groundbreaking hip hop pioneer, activist and artist Chuck D
has shared information about his upcoming docuseries, Fight The Power: How Hip Hop Changed The World
. The four-part docuseries - created alongside PBS and BBC Music, developed by Chuck D and his producing partner, Lorrie Boula - will premiere on 31 January 2023.
The series tells the story of hip-hop through first-hand accounts by some of hip-hop's key players and archival footage. It will explore the genre as an artform and type of expression, as well as its place in American history - serving as an anthology to the music.
'The hip hop community has, from the start, been doing what the rest of media is only now catching up to. Long before any conglomerate realized it was time to wake up, hip-hop had been speaking out and telling truths. Working with PBS and BBC is an opportunity to deliver these messages through new ways and help explain hip hop's place in history and hopefully inspire us all to take it further.' - Chuck D
