You read the title correctly. World Star Hip Hop has released a documentary that chronicles what it is like for a handful of rappers trying to make it in the game in some of Chicago’s most violent neighborhoods. The documentary is called “The Field: Violence, Hip Hop and Hope in Chicago,” and it’s more than fistfights and ratchet behavior.
Yes, this is the same World Star known for instigating the creation of violent homemade videos that encourage people to shout out “World Starrrrr” while mauling each other in their front yards, at bus stops and on buses. Nevertheless, the website is behind the film that goes into a virtual war zone and documents the real world problems of these youngsters whose lives are in peril every single day on the streets of America’s most dangerous city.
According to MTV News the doc follows the lives of; Lil Durk, King L, Young Chop, Lil Mouse, Lil Herb, Lil Bibby and Lawless Inc. CEO Larry “Larro” Wilson and is directed by Mandon Lovett.
Take a look at the documentary in the video below.
Chicago rapper Rhymefest has even weighed in on the doc.
“We dealing with a new generation, these new kids growing up without mamas or daddies. When your mama gone and your mama don’t give a f— about you, you know what that makes? A killer, because he don’t care no more.”
