“I live in a constant state of wanting to prove myself,” says rapper G-Eazy in a trailer for Netflix’s hip hop docuseries Rapture. The popular rapper is the focus of one of eight episodes that dive into the lives of very different artists as they share their experience in the hip hop game.
In addition to G-Eazy, the docuseries follows a mix of rappers that range from vets to under-the-radar artists to rookies. Other episodes take a look at the lives of Nas and Dave East, T.I., Rapsody, Logic, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, 2 Chainz and Just Blaze.
G-Eazy is one of the hottest rappers on the scene and at the same time, when he says, “I live in a constant state of wanting to prove myself” he’s right considering he is a white rapper at a time when cultural appropriation is a constant topic of discussion in the industry. As he walks that tightrope of cultural appropriation and appreciation, Netflix and Mass Appeal ride along with him as we see the non-stop grind of his life. From his shows around the world to late nights in the studio, G-Eazy describes the personal stories that have driven him to succeed when a wealth of obstacles stood in his way.
All episodes of Rapture launch globally March 30.
