The 10 Best Documentaries About Rappers


Last week, Detroit rapper Danny Brown released 12.12.08, a documentary from 2009 that chronicled his steady hustle in the D’s hip-hop scene. While the film felt slightly dated, it certainly captured a moment for Danny, back when he still had braids and a generally different rap style, a far cry from his latest hipster-friendly days as an artist signed to Fool’s Gold. Danny’s documentary wasn’t the first of its kind, though, as plenty of rappers through the years have taken to the format in an effort to chronicle a tour, moment or behind-the-scenes look at their lives. Here we’ve compiled our 10 favorite documentaries about rappers. Click through to check them out.
