Big Boy presents “50 Years of Hip-Hop” — a three-part documentary series celebrating the 50th anniversary of a genre that started in the Bronx and grew into a cultural phenomenon spread across the world. Episode One covers the rise of Eazy E, the formation of N.W.A., and the gangster rap era of the 80’s / 90’s. Dr. Dre and Warren G speak on the rise of Snoop Dogg — sharing stories behind iconic tracks like Deep Cover, Nuthin’ But a “G” Thang, and The Chronic album. Warren G and Snoop remember working with the former CEO of Death-Row Records, Suge Knight. “50 Years of Hip Hop” also explores the rise of Tupac Shakur, his famous beef with Biggie Smalls, and his tragic murder in 1996. Marlon Wayans, E-40, and Snoop Dogg recall their finals moments with the west-coast rapper. Plus, boxing champion Mike Tyson speaks on Tupac’s legacy.
