great documentary
15 November 2018 | by comicartfiendSee all my reviews

A must for hip hop heads. Truly appreciate this program and hope they continue with some more episodes. Would love to see a episode on the artists whose breaks were used and what they thought about their music being repurposed. Very entertaining I mowed through the episodes and hope they do more.
