TRAILER: GET UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE REAL UK HIP HOP


If this epic trailer is anything to go by, Under The Influence is set to share the untold story of UK hip hop in truly transformative fashion. Edited by gifted visual artist/musician turned filmmaker Benjamin Wachenje, Under The Influence takes us back to the humble roots of a movement that drew inspiration from US hip hop, soul and reggae to create an undeniably homegrown sound that would eventually resonate across the globe.

With the Godfather of UK hip hop Rodney P as narrator, and a cast of groundbreaking creatives contributing the project, this forthcoming documentary is a welcome addition to the canon of UK music and culture. Under The Influence is still in production, and they want YOUR INPUT. Join the debate now and make your contribution:
