Founding Fathers, the untold story of hip hop  MAR 28 2016

Founding Fathers is a full-length documentary film about the history of hip hop narrated by Public Enemy's Chuck D. Everyone knows that hip hop originated in the Bronx. What this film presupposes is, maybe it didn't? Maybe hip hop started even earlier than commonly thought in places like Brooklyn with DJs like Grandmaster Flowers.

I don't know if this film ever found release anywhere...it's not even on IMDB or Wikipedia. (via @sampotts)
