Complex Networks is expanding its content with a daily hip-hop news program.
Made in partnership with Quibi and Gunpowder & Sky, the upcoming show will cover a wide range of subjects relevant to today's hip-hop culture. And, no, we're not just talking about music-related topics. The show will also feature stories on clothing, sneakers, art, and much more.
"Launching a go-to music and hip-hop culture destination for the streaming generation courtesy of Quibi is a dream come true for this music loving crusty man who was around for the birth of Yo! MTV Raps," explained Van Toffler, CEO of Gunpowder & Sky. "And doing it with Complex, the home of hip-hop culture, in a handful of minutes each day will not only make it a must-see, but loud and fun as hell."
Justin Killion, Complex Networks' EVP of Development, Production & Distribution, added, “We’re excited to partner with Quibi and Gunpowder & Sky on this newest venture as they are creatives who understand the diversity of storytelling. Hip-hop is in the fabric of Complex’s DNA so we look forward to seeing our audience on this fresh, new platform.”
The news show will be produced by Gunpowder & Sky, Den of Thieves, and Complex. It is slated to premiere in April 2020, with new episodes airing Monday through Friday.
