– You truly are as fine as wine, and so divine. You know I had to make you mine, no matter the time. So, I scaled that mountaintop to get that record dropped, just to see the clouds part as your pretty lips did the same, hoping one day, they’d utter my name. (-Ezekiel “Zeke” Figuero, The Get Down Netflix Series).
– These were the words that inspired Nelly Blaise. An aspiring filmmaker and reporter, the Breda-based student decided to create a concept for a very unique and educational documentary: The origin of Hip-Hop in the Netherlands, and the struggles the artists faced during the early beginnings of the genre.
Who are the most important and influential Hip-Hop artists in the Netherlands? What is the difference between Dutch and American Hip-Hop? Who is the Drake or Kanye of the Netherlands? Those and more questions will be answered in the documentary – but that is not all! Also members of the Dutch Hip-Hop culture will be interviewed, sharing their professional knowledge about the industry.
Sounds amazing, right?
