3 Reasons 'The Hip-Hop Fellow' Is One of the Most Important Documentaries Of 2014

By Shannon Houston, Hollywood Staff

A good documentary can change a person, and a great documentary can change the world. If you've ever wondered why your college isn't offering a course on hip-hop, it's probably because they haven't seen the work going down at Harvard University's Hip-Hop Archives, and they haven't yet seen Kenneth Price's powerful new doc, The Hip-Hop Fellow. Right now Harvard students are getting the chance to study with 9th Wonder, a Grammy Award-winning producer who worked with everyone from Jay Z to Mary J. Blige, and then went on to become one of the first truly hip-hop hip-hop professors. Price's film follows 9th Wonder (and includes interviews with Young Guru, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and DJ Premier) as he teaches his Standards of Hip-Hop course and works on his own thesis project. The documentary has started making its way around the festival circuit, and you're going to want to catch it when it comes to a town near you. Here are just a few reasons The Hip-Hop Fellow is one of the best documentaries so far this year.
