The hip-hop community was given something to get excited about recently, with a debut trailer for an upcoming independent documentary by filmmaker Dean Huson. What's Real? A Hip Hop Documentary is the directors first feature length outing, and it's certainly an ambitious one. The film features introspective interviews and tour footage from a veritable crème de la crème of British and US underground artists, and is set to explore definitions of "real" in the eyes of a rabid hardcore audience.
Croydon based rap outfit TPS Fam have steadily been etching their name into the tapestry of UK hip-hop over recent years. Their 2012 sophomore album The Big Q.P was widely well received, firmly cementing them as a stand-out talking point, amongst a modern industry that often seems somewhat hindered by an overabundance of emerging mediocrity.
