Right time, right place
13 August 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Sometimes the stars are alligned the right way. And some of those times are depicted in here (and also pun intended). While this is mostly focused on Rap, there is also other musical artists who get their fair share and their story told. How did they get where they are? By not applying to the rules that were forced upon them.

Defiant they are then. It is also quite in depth, although obviously you won't get every detail about Tupac or Death Row, but this is more than coherent. You get an overall picture and you get a lot of backstory and also every episode of this documentary (4 in total) get a beginning, middle and end. This is really good and anyone who likes documentaries and music will get something out of it
