Unmissable..
20 May 2019 | by andymaranamSee all my reviews

It's Raw, its Reall! as it should be & then some!! the footage is amazing, very well put together chronologically, as any top documentary I've ever seen, my only gripe is such a masterclass was only 4 episodes. That aside.. its an epic documentary which i would recommend to anyone, as its not just about rap it's about life, Real life! family & brotherhood. Thanks for years of deep music & now a documentary to match. A solid 10/10. Unmissable!
