Chuck D, the legendary comedian, has teamed up with PBS and BBC Studios to bring the Hip-Hoops tale to life on the small screen.

Fight The Power: How Hip Hop Changed The World will be directed by rap legend Lorrie Boula and will air on January 31, 2023, according to the network. The film will take viewers back to the beginning of hip-hop music and document the genre's progress over four decades.

As part of the production, VIBE received a press release revealing firsthand accounts of the world's most prominent and brightest stars, including Ice-T, Fat Joe, Run DMC, Will.i.am., Lupe Fiasco, and others.

The legendary frontman of Public Enemy talked about the project and the vital role hip-hop has played in America's complicated history. The emcee discussed the genre's dedication to the truth and how the music has established the foundation for media today.

A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer claims that the hip hop community has been doing from the start what the rest of the media is only now catching up to. Long before any conglomerate realized it was time to wake up, hip hop had been speaking out and revealing secrets.

The legend continues to talk about his collaboration with PBS and BBC Studios in bringing this significant piece of history to life. Together, we can demonstrate hip hop's place in history in new ways, and hopefully inspire others to pursue it even further.

Fight The Power: How Hip Hop Changed The World, produced by Chuck D and Boula, is also produced by BBC Studios for PBS and BBC Music. Helen Bart will serve as the series' producer, with Yemi Bamiro and Todd Williams serving as series' directors. The documentary airs on all station-branded PBS platforms, including PBS.org and the PBS Video app.
