Diddy says it best in VH1’s upcoming Rock Doc The Tanning of America, based on the 2011 book by visionary Steve Stoute:
“Hip-hop is responsible for breaking down the racial barriers that were up.”
The Tanning of America is the story of how hip-hop transformed a nation. With commentary from those who know this best: Steve Stoute, Diddy, Russell Simmons, Rick Rubin, Mariah Carey, Nas, Dr. Dre, Rev Run, Pharrell and more discuss their experiences as the pioneers of the culture.
The Tanning of America: One Nation Under Hip Hop is a four night event, premiering FEB 24-27 + 11/10C on VH1. Join the convo and tell us how hip-hop changed you by using #HipHopChangedUs
