From Mass Appeal, Rapture stares directly into the bright light that hip hop culture shines on the world and doesn’t blink. Throughout 8 episodes and featuring a diverse swath of artists — Nas and Dave East, T.I., Rapsody, Logic, G-Eazy, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, 2 Chainz and Just Blaze – Rapture dives into the artists’ lives with their families and friends, to sitting front row in the studio and grinding on tour, to experiencing the ecstatic power of moving the crowd. All episodes launch globally March 30.
Here’s a sneak peek of Rapsody’s episode:
Rapsody has gone from freestyling at North Carolina State’s Free Expression Tunnel with Kooley High, to earning a grammy nomination for best rap album along with hip hop luminaries such as Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z. After more than a decade on the grind, she has paid her dues and earned a spot on the short list of best lyricists in the game. Netflix and Mass Appeal’s new series, Rapture, documents Rapsody’s year as she works with 9th Wonder to promote her instant classic, Laila’s Wisdom, and then witness its critical success. Viewers of this in depth documentary are invited to meet the family that anchors her, the friends that encouraged her, and the peers that she worked with on her path to the top.
