Default Uprising: Hip Hop And The L.A. Riots, To Premiere May 1

On May 1, VH1 will be premiering a new film from its Rock Docs series, entitled UPRISING: Hip Hop And The L.A. Riots.

For anyone who lived through the 1992 L.A. riots that resulted after the beating of Rodney King, you will be completely transported back to the time when the entire country felt that justice had not been served, and unrest was at its peak. To anyone who wasn’t around at the time, the parallels that can be drawn between what happened then and what’s been happening today in the news are undeniable. UPRISING focuses not just on the news of that day, but how it affected and directly influenced hip hop as we know it. Watch the trailer for the film, which is narrated by Snoop Dogg, above, and tune in on May 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT for one of our most stunning docs yet.

VH1′S EMMY AWARD-WINNING “VH1 ROCK DOCS” FRANCHISE RECOGNIZES THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE L.A. RIOTS WITH
“UPRISING: HIP HOP AND THE L.A. RIOTS” PREMIERING TUESDAY, MAY 1 AT 9PM*


NEW YORK, NY-April 4, 2012- It has been 20 years since the L.A. Riots, the four days of unrest, looting and rage that paralyzed Los Angeles and sent racial shockwaves throughout the country. After decades of racial tension in South Central Los Angeles, VH1′s Emmy Award-winning “VH1 Rock Docs” franchise explores the connection between the violence manifested on the streets during the 1992 riots and the rage expressed in Hip Hop by NWA, Dr. Dre, Ice T, and Ice Cube among others with VH1′s “UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots” premiering Tuesday, May 1 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.

Executive produced and narrated by Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg and directed by Mark Ford, “UPRISING: Hip Hop and The L.A. Riots” tells the story of the most destructive riot in American history and is scored by some of the most iconic and controversial hip hop tracks of all time, such as NWA’s “F Tha Police” and Body Count’s “Cop Killer.” With definitive first-hand accounts and exclusive rare footage that was locked away and hasn’t been seen until now, the documentary gives an inside look at the four fiery days that left 53 people dead and over 12,000 arrested, “UPRISING” is told through the diverse perspective of the rappers, musicians, police officers and victims who lived through the landmark L.A. Riots in April, 1992. Viewers will also witness never-before-heard stories from well known figures and Hip Hop artists who were affected by or actual participants in the riots, including: Rodney King, Arsenio Hall, Ice T, Professor Todd Boyd (USC), Connie Rice (Civil Rights attorney), John Singleton, Too Short, KRS-One, Nas and Henry Watson (one of the “LA Four” convicted of beating Reginald Denny) and many more.

After making its successful debut and receiving rave reviews at the SXSW Film Festival this past March “UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots,” puts a searing spotlight on race relations, revisits Hip Hop’s warning of what was to come and documents the turbulent days of the riot with first hand accounts from residents that were caught in the cross hairs.

VH1′s Emmy Award-winning Rock Docs are feature-length documentaries that tell unique stories of artists and music from a wide range of genres, styles and musical perspectives. “UPRISING: Hip Hop and the LA Riots” is executive produced by Mark Ford and Kevin Lopez for Creature Films and executive produced by Brad Abramson, Stephen Mintz, Shelly Tatro and Jeff Olde for VH1.

'uprising'? More like 'burn down your own neighborhood'.
