Planet Hip Hop

This ideology that I am sharing with you comes on the basis of what attracts me to filmmaking; the beautiful combination of executing music and moving images. Many filmmakers love working with music to enhance their films, whereas a lot of music lovers enjoy fantasizing images to the music that they love through dreams and memories. Artistic and aesthetically speaking there is nothing more appealing to the eyes and ears when music and images are perfectly put together.

For instance, have you ever heard of “Dark Side of the Rainbow”, where Pink Floyd sync’s up “Dark Side of the Moon” with “The Wizard of Oz”? Yes, that conspiracy of the combinations of two masterpieces is too close to a gem to ever pass up viewing. If you enjoy that concept of music and imagery like this one, wait till you get a hold of this one.

I present to you, “Planet Hip Hop”.


Here is what you need to do to find the next greatest modern day music-cinematic masterpiece. Use your Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, or your preferred streaming platform and make a 30 song hip-hop playlist of all of your favorite songs. It is okay to add more songs to this playlist as you think of more songs. Next, proceed to watch the “Planet Earth” series by BBC. Hit shuffle on that playlist and while you watch the beautiful documentary series you will have a wonderful time. The key to this is to have the TV on mute while you have your Blue Tooth wireless speaker blasting your playlist. Seriously, if you want to be productive or relax while having something on the television with your favorite hip-hop music going along with it, then this is the absolute ticket.

This polymerization of music and imagery is dazzling, engaging and after at least an episode you will start to believe that 2 Chainz, 2Pac, and Lil Wayne produced their music to sync perfectly with BBC’s “Planet Earth”. Personally, for me as a writer, I need a lot of distractions in my environment to keep me focused, and this discovery that I made is the perfect source of media to have on TV. One time, “X Gon Give It To Ya” by DMX came on while the infamous wolf chase was going on while I was writing. The possibilities are endless of what discoveries could be made between the two genres across the combination of these artistic mediums.


For the next time that you have a get together at your house, and you are playing music, put on “Planet Earth” from Netflix because it is a great white noise distraction in the background. This concept never provides a dull moment because of the engaging content that it provides. Imagine Kanye West’s “FML” playing while the polar bear is struggling to swim to shore. Not everything sync’s with perfect content that applies but, it makes for a leisurely white noise entertainment platform in the background that is astonishingly enjoyable.

Remember, “The Zos Knows”.
