Are you ready for six new hour-long documentaries where the team visits the Bay Area, Paris, Seoul, Nashville, Lagos and Atlanta? Yes or no? Why not? The season debuts January 10 on the VICELAND channel and here is a breakdown of what you're gonna see:
Bay Area: Starring G-Eazy, E-40, Nef the Pharaoh, Mistah F.A.B, the Oakland Police Department, and the Bay's strong Black Lives Matter movement.
Nashville: Starring Kesha, Jelly Roll, Margo Price, Struggle Jennings, and the infamous Mikel Knight and his last-chance group of ex-cons explore the flipside of the city that gave us Taylor Swift.
Paris: French rap artists like MHD, Nishka, S. Pri Noir, and Medine show what it's like to live in a city currently in a state of emergency besieged by terror attacks and rising racism.
Atlanta: From OGs like T.I, Killer Mike, and Jeezy to the new movement of artists led by Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Young Thug, and Metro Boomin, we examine how ATL is leading the world in modern rap music.
Seoul: As K-Pop grows bigger year one year we spend a week with the Justin Bieber of Seoul—aka Taeyang of the country's biggest boy band Big Bang. We also trail the fortunes of the youngsters hoping to make it in one of the most competitive pop music environments. Also: using K-pop as psywarfare against North Korea.
Lagos, Nigeria: Wizkid invites us to film him in his hometown of Lagos but tracking him down proves to be an issue so we spend time with other stars of the city including Ice Prince, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, and the legendary Afro Beat genius Femi Kuti.
