12 Hip-Hop Documentaries You Can Watch On Netflix Instant

Ice T & Q-Tip Art Of Rap

In this writer’s humble opinion, the single greatest invention in the history of mankind (give or take, the odd printing press or internal combustion engine) is Netflix Instant. No single entertainment medium provides such a useful tool in transforming  scores of perfectly productive hours of your life into blissful, zoned-out vegetation. Whether, you spend hours binge-watching Drop Dead Diva (simply because it’s on) or you comb through its exhaustive library of terrible B-horror films (I see you Birdermic!), Netflix has something for everyone.

In the spirit of sharing, We at XXL would like to inform our audience of the wide-range of hip-hop documentaries available on the service for your public consumption. Thus, we have compiled a list of classic hip-hop docs that you can watch this very instant on Netflix. Just don’t bring Schoolboy Q around if you plan to watch it with your girl.

    Copyright Criminals and The Art of Rap are both must watches. Incredibly insightful and interesting. Well filmed.
