Trivia

Producer Sam Dunn had previously completed a documentary called Metal: A Headbanger's Journey which explored the evolution of heavy metal music and attempted to categorize and classify the various bands and subgenres of heavy metal. This documentary was produced in a similar style and approach although with less structured classification and an obvious focus on hip-hop music. See more »

No love for the Midwest?
17 January 2020 | by Jonhall83See all my reviews

Fourth season now and no love for guys like Twista, Tech, Do Or Die, Or Bone thugs-n-harmony? Disappointing there.
