Summary
Subculture has become pop-culture. The voice of the streets has become the choice of the record, video, book, video game buying public, to the tune of multiple millions of dollars every year. Hip hop has become the single most compelling market force. As a movement, it has become the voice of the voiceless, giving a better understanding of daily struggle and street-life to anyone willing to listen. But the word “movement” reduces things. It implies that there is an ending to it. So better we call hip hop a “lifestyle”- a living, breathing thing. Like any living thing, it undergoes changes and, for the youth, a history must be kept. The past pulses on wax and is told in print but has been absent on film. Until now. Hip hop Immortals: We Got Your Kids answers the call of hip hop lifers everywhere by capturing a unique and honest portrayal of hip hop not as a target market, but as a heartbeat. Recognizing that the energy goes beyond music, beyond clothes, and way beyond image, We Got Your Kids approaches hip hop from an insiders point of view. Every part of production is handled by professionals who are hip hop, who embrace the lifestyle, and for who this is not just a job, but a documentation of culture. On the front-line and fully embedded, we’ve been there to catch hip hop as it is, from gritty street life, to the mansions that lay at the end of the rainbow.
