If you happen to be a hip-hop fan infatuated with the allure of yesteryear, the forthcoming Netflix original series, The Get Down, should be right up your alley. The popular streaming network Netflix unveiled the trailer to the series and it’s awesome.

The coolest part of the roll-out is the news that DJ Grandmaster Flash, one of hip-hop’s more beloved turntable pioneers, will play a vital role in the storyline, as well as behind the scenes as an associate producer and an adviser of the series.

The Get Down, which will be directed by Baz Luhrmann, the man behind the Oscar-winning musical Moulin Rouge!, is a thirteen hour-long drama, which chronicles the journey of several African-African teens who come of age during the disco era, which leads into the earliest incarnations of hip-hop.

And from the looks of the cast, The Get Down is sure to be full of quality acting, with the likes of established talents such as Jaden Smith, Shameik Moore, Giancarlo Esposito, Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Skylan Brooks and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in the fold. Newcomers comers include Mamoudou Athie (portraying Grandmaster Flash) and Tremaine Brown, Jr., in additon to the veteran actor Jimmy Smits will all make appearances throughout the duration of the series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix plans to premiere The Get Down this spring. Watch the trailer above.
