- Summaries (1)
It's been whispered about for years in the Hip Hop community. Now learn the shocking truth and see the irrefutable evidence -- top Hip Hop artists are being targeted by one of the most powerful police departments in the country. Unlike performers in any other musical genre, respected Hip Hop artists such as Jay-Z, Ja Rule, 50 Cent, The Game, Cuban Link, Damon Dash, Snoop Dogg, Nas, Lil' Kim and more are constantly followed, questioned and harassed without probable cause by New York City's finest. The NYPD maintains that there's no profiling of Hip Hop artists and their crews. But in this program, retired police detective Derrick Parker reveals that he created an NYPD rap unit after the murder of Notorious B.I.G. in 1997, then saw his unit become officially sanctioned three years later. With actual law enforcement rapper surveillance footage and a rare peek at the infamous "Rap Binder" used in law enforcement training, BLACK and BLUE tells the compelling story of Detective Derrick Parker, the unit he created and the controversy it has spawned. This is one of the secret stories of Hip Hop, a culture that continues to be exploited by corporate America and condemned by mainstream society.
