Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes


Take an in-depth look at masculinity in rap music and hip-hop culture — where creative genius, poetic beauty, and mad beats collide with misogyny, violence, and homophobia. The film includes interviews with famous rappers like Mos Def, Fat Joe, Chuck D, Jadakiss, and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, as well as commentary from Michael Eric Dyson, Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Kevin Powell, and Sarah Jones.
