Apple Music is celebrating the 50th anniversary of hip-hop with a new audio series called Hip-Hop DNA. The series, hosted by Ebro Darden, will explore the history and evolution of hip-hop through interviews with artists, producers, and historians.
Each episode of Hip-Hop DNA will focus on a different aspect of hip-hop, such as its origins, its different regional styles, and its impact on popular culture. The series will also feature exclusive performances and commentary from some of the biggest names in hip-hop.
Hip-Hop DNA is the latest in a series of initiatives by Apple Music to celebrate the genre. In 2022, the company launched a Hip-Hop Hits playlist that features over 1,000 songs from the genre’s biggest artists. Apple Music also has a dedicated hip-hop section on its website and app, which features interviews, reviews, and playlists.
The launch of Hip-Hop DNA is a sign of Apple Music’s commitment to hip-hop. The series will provide fans with a comprehensive overview of the genre’s history and evolution. It is also a great opportunity for new listeners to learn about hip-hop and discover some of the genre’s best music.
