Working with award winning filmmaker STEPHEN DAVID TO PRODUCE AS GOOD A VERSION OF THE TRUTH AD HUMANLY POSSIBLE. LOTS OF HISTORY HAS BEEN LEFT OUT. WHILE ALL THE ICONS ARE STILL ALIVE WE NEED DOCUMENTATION OF THEIR CONTRIBUTION. Hip hop was born in the Bronx and in Harlem. And moved to the 5 boroughs then it took over the world. I want to celebrate all the great artists who gave so much.
The Hip Hop Mogul does it again! Russell Simmons has a documentary series in the works titled The Definitive History of Hip Hop. This series will begin production sometime this year.
He also goes to Instagram and shares his excited about his project.
According to BET.com this is what Simmons had to say:
"Hip-hop began in the Bronx and Queens, and was fueled by pioneering new artists with an incredible hunger to express themselves in unimaginably bold new ways," Simmons said in a statement. "The Definitive History of Hip-Hop is the untold story of the birth of this art form – the series gets behind the scenes of what drove the beats, the rhymes, the ideas — and the people — that so powerfully hit a chord with all of youth culture in America and around the world."
