“Hip-hop has been a central part of my life for over four decades,” said Will. “I’m excited to share my first-hand experiences and those of some of hip-hop’s greatest legends as we delve into the origins of one of the most influential musical genres in history.”

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star will take a deep dive into hip-hop music as it emerged in 1988. 1988 was a pivotal year for the genre.

The song topped the charts in several regions around the world.
