Hip-hop is a man's game....
...but does it have to be? A self-described "hip-hop head" takes an in-depth look at masculinity and manhood in rap and hip-hop, where creative genius collides with misogyny, violence and homophobia, exposing the complex intersections of culture and commerce.
HIP-HOP: Beyond Beats and Rhymes premieres Tuesday, February 20 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, Independent Lens is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
