Black Thought & Questlove’s “Rap Yearbook” Documentary Will Discuss Key Rap Songs (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Earlier this week, The Roots and fellow Soulquarians member Bilal reunited for “It Ain’t Fair.” The song is a focal point of the upcoming film Detroit, and while Black Thought raps, the sound and message applies to the real life events of 1967 as well as 2017.

The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native Hip-Hop band stayed in the news this week. IndieWire reports that Questlove and Black Thought will join forces with Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney for a new AMC series. AMC Visionaries: Rap Yearbook adapts the critically-acclaimed book by Hip-Hop journalist/author Shea Serrano into a documentary-style series.

“Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson and Tariq ‘Black Thought’ Trotter will bring fans a unique look at the stories behind Hip-Hop’s global influence. We’re all in and excited for these leaders to share their vision,” said AMC President Charlie Collier. Reportedly, each episode focuses on the creation of one key song from Rap’s discography. A guest MC and key contributors are also involved in each episode.

The six-part series is planned for 2018, and produced by Thought and Quest’s Passyunk Productions (taking its name from a South Philadelphia thoroughfare). Earlier this year, it was announced that The Roots are producing two children’s television shows, including South Street Sounds.
