“Hip Hop Nz” Thursday December 18 at 10:30pm on TV2

Who said Hip Hop would die? Hip Hop is now the most popular genre to infiltrate the global commercial market and our everyday lives through music, dance, clothes, artworks and entertainment.

HIP HOP NZ is a documentary like no other. Confrontational, humorous and raw, this documentary holds no bars when it comes to attitude.

Featuring some of New Zealand's most well known Hip Hop artists, HIP HOP NZ explores the politics and commercialism that continues to drive the Hip Hop machine.

Topping the charts internationally and locally, inspiring movies, huge clothing industries, creating controversy, affecting our every day language and speech, and advertising - there is no denying that Hip Hop is a sure money spinner for some.

Whether politically, artistically or financially motivated, this documentary offers an insightful experience into the dreams and passions of the Hip Hop culture in Aotearoa.

HIP HOP NZ takes us on a jam-packed roller-coaster ride, covering the four elements of Hip Hop - from break-dancing and graffiti to DJ-ing and rap. With an eclectic and unpredictable style that offers a visual and oral feast of past and contemporary music video gems, and an array of frank and outspoken characters that are ultimately endearing.

HIP HOP NZ contains interviews with artists such as: King Kapisi Che Fu P-Money Manuel Bundy DJ Sir-vere Askew DTL Dean Hapeta Mareko Lucia Mark (AKA Slave) Otis (AKA MC OJ) Scribe Kosmo DJ Raw And industry insider Kerry Buchanan
