Synopsis
Hip-Hop is a way of life. It is an urban history of the struggle for freedom and dignity and against poverty and crime. It is a slang and a style, an attitude and a dream. It is a code of ethics that saves lives and changes minds. And most of all it is an expression -- raw and real -- of what is happening on the streets where the whole explosive culture was born. It touches nerves across all racial, economic and sexual lines. It addresses issues of love and crime, family and hope, drugs and the next generation -- all of which are both specific to life on urban streets and universal to all human beings. Three years in the making, "Rhyme & Reason" is a moving snap-shot of the state of contemporary Hip-Hop and the state of contemporary urban life.
