One of the main themes of our film The Curators of Hip Hop is independence. In our documentary film The Curators Volume 1: A Story of Independence, one sees five very different emcees at different stages of their career over the course of four years. The characters all speak for themselves and discuss how their personal lives have influenced and developed their artistic styles. Parallel with the story of the artists runs the story of “The Curators of Hip Hop,” the movement and brand.

The funny thing about moving back home after living abroad for years is that nothing ever feels quite the same. What was once home now feels foreign. Your old haunts and old friends are now strangely unfamiliar; leaving you wondering if the home you remember is simply an elaborate story you dreamt up over the years. In grasping for the familiar, you find yourself questioning what you once took for granted and hoping to discover how exactly it all changed while you were gone.
