“…one is again and again challenged by the uncompromising radically and need for expression of the artists encountered; seduced by their inventiveness, struck by their lucidity, conquered by their pacifism… Ultimately, this series of stories is as much a geopolitical treatise, a compendium of suffering and anger expressed in the name of art. Hip-Hop emerges full-grown.” – La Croix
