A mini-documentary about hip-hop in Brooklyn's projects:

Brooklyn has been a birthplace for hip-hop since the very beginning. More importantly, its housing developments are some of the most well-known incubators of hip-hop talent in the world. Artists like Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G., and Mos Def all found their voice through their childhood in Brooklyn's projects. We followed children, teenagers and adults and asked them how hip-hop influenced their lives, and how their lives influenced their hip-hop.
