Vh1 has a documentary on the way and it’s revolutionary for hip-hop. Titled The Tanning Of America: One Nation Under Hip Hop, the movie will reflect on how the genre gravely affected our economy, further closing the racial gap that was heavily prevalent in America prior to its existence.
Entailing interviews from hip-hop heavy weights such as Dr. Dre, Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons, the project will give an in-depth look at the rise of rap. The documentary also touches base with political figures like Cory Booker and Al Sharpton, who open up on the topic examining the force as a cultural movement.
