As the drug game dried up in the streets, a new hustle emerged...hip hop. After time in prison, we catch up with the five main contributors: Big U manages Kurupt, Deb moves to Atlanta, Haitian Jack works with the Fugees, Bimmy is hired at Def Jam and Trick Trick records his first album.
Our OGs get more involved with the music. They learn the details of management, producing and developing artists. However, their pasts catch up to them. By the time of civil unrest in 1992 Los Angeles, the main contributors found themselves doing time.
Our OGs learn to hustle, hoping to make a better life for their families. The lessons they learn provide them unique business acumen that will one day serve them in the music business.
Hip Hop Uncovered introduces five main contributors (Big U, Deb, Trick Trick, Bimmy and Haitian Jack). They are the unsung heroes of hip hop's legacy. They are the men and women who worked in the shadows to affect hip hop at the highest levels.
