The harsher side of Chicago has been the focus of discussion over the past years. This documentary focuses on a different aspect: the thriving culture surrounding Chicago’s hip-hop. The documentary was made by Cole Bennett from Lyrical Lemonade, who explains, “I made this documentary because Chicago is labeled as such a negative city to a lot of people, yet Chicago is so much more than that. We have a wonderful hip hop scene that can truly be identified as a culture.”

Throughout the film, Bennett talks with Twista, Chance The Rapper’s father, Lucki Eck$, Taylor Bennett, DLOW, Joey Purp, and many others.

One of the most powerful moments comes around the 32:00 mark, when Chance’s father talks about the time one of Chance’s friends was killed, and what impact that had on Chance’s decision to pursue a career in rap. See that part below:
