Watch Life+Times’ TDE Documentary
Black Hippy have been one of, if not the, most documented rap collectives of the last few years, so we know there’s a lot to sift through. But if you’re going to watch anything on the West Coast crew, make sure it’s Life+Times‘ new ‘Made In America: TDE’ documentary.
The 16-minute film follows Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock on the last leg of their Black Hippy tour earlier this year. In addition to crispy footage of live performances, including K. Dot’s solo set at the San Diego County Fair, where he drew his biggest crowd to date, there’s also plenty of in-depth insight.
Speaking separately, the foursome discuss growing up in L.A. and how they came together as Black Hippy, their progression as MCs, and goals they still strive to achieve, like “being mentioned in the same conversation as the greats” (word to Solo).
