Netflix’s pricey Baz Luhrmann hip-hop drama arrives today

The series takes place in New York in the ’70s when the city was in ruins and nearly bankrupt. Despite the problems, it gave birth to hip-hop, disco and punk, in part due to the desperation of artists to break from poverty. The series follows a band of teenagers who develop hip-hop from “The Get Down,”or four-break groove that forms a song’s core. – Steve Dent, Engadget http://engt.co/2bnk1Pn
