Influence Rules to This Sh t Ep. 7

Samuel Fly
What started as a small party scene in the Bronx 40 years ago has grown into a multi-billion-dollar juggernaut industry. Hip-hop is now the number-one-selling music genre in the world. And the road it has taken hasn’t always been smooth. Our cast takes us on a journey from hip-hop’s infancy all the way to its current state as a global superpower.

As part of Complex's Get Money initiative, the eight-part series "Rules to This Sh*t" covers the trials and tribulations of embarking on a rap career, with words of wisdom from Common, N.O.R.E., Too $hort, the late Nipsey Hussle, and more.
