Rhyme & Reason - Method Man

Rhyme & Reason – (1997)

Peter Spirer’s Rhyme & Reason was released in 1997 and tackled the topic of the growth of the hip-hop industry from its humble roots in the South Bronx to it expansion to a multibillion dollar industry. Over 80 significant artists and cultural figures were interviewed for the film including pioneers KRS-One, Kurtis Blow and Chuck D to some of the 1990s biggest hit makers including Wu-Tang Clan, The Fugees and Diddy. A fascinating look on where the culture came from and where it went.
