Planet Rock – The Story Of Hiphop And The Crack Generation

The fact that crack cocaine and hip hop became the two biggest elements of urban street culture in the 1980s, suggests a new VH1 documentary, was not entirely coincidence.

“Planet Rock” (Sunday night at 10) doesn’t suggest hip hop caused the crack epidemic, or vice versa. It does argue that they fed off each other, particularly hip hop off the crack culture.

To make the case, the producers talk with major rap stars like Snoop Dogg, B-Real of Cypress Hill and RZA and Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan.
