It is based on the Spotify playlist of the same name which was launched on the platform in 2015. RapCaviar Presents is directed by Karam Gill, Quan Lateef-Hill, Peter J. Scalettar, Wendy J.N. Lee, Farah X, and Mandon Lovett. All six episodes debut on Hulu on March 30.
The docuseries focuses on issues that impact not only the fans but the musicians themselves and society ranging from mental health, women’s sexuality, the criminalization of rap, social media, and more. Commentary from cultural tastemakers and media experts add to the point of view offered by the highlighted artists.
“We’re really proud of this docuseries,” Creative Director & Head of Urban Music at Spotify and Executive Producer of RapCaviar Presents, Carl Chery expressed in a statement to Complex, who exclusively reported the trailer on Wednesday (March 22.)
“As a storytelling medium that is rooted in the spirit of traditional journalism – most of the episodes chronicle an artist’s journey in parallel with topics that relate to society and hip-hop culture at large. Offering an inside look at the personal stories behind some of today’s most popular artists, we examine rap’s dominant archetype female empowerment, generational trauma, and the criminalization of hip-hop, among other topics.”
