If you happen to be an old school hip-hop fan, the forthcoming Netflix original series, “The Get Down”, should be right up your alley. The worldwide streaming network Netflix unveiled the trailer to the series and it’s awesome.
The dope part of the roll-out is the news that DJ Grandmaster Flash, hip-hop’s more beloved turntable pioneers, will play a huge role in the storyline, as well as behind the scenes as an associate producer and an adviser of the series.
“The Get Down”, which will be directed by Baz Luhrmann, the man behind the Oscar-winning musical “Moulin Rouge!”, is a thirteen hour-long drama, which chronicles the journey of several African-African teens who come of age during the disco era, which leads into the earliest incarnations of hip-hop.
“The Get Down” is sure to be full of quality acting, featuring talents such as Jaden Smith, Shameik Moore, Giancarlo Esposito, Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Skylan Brooks and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in the fold.
