Netflix‘s hit series, The Get Down, has quickly become a cult favorite with music fans. Loosely based on Hip Hop‘s humble beginnings in the late 70s, its soundtrack is just as colorful as the scenes portrayed throughout by director Baz Luhrmann. A mix of classic Hip Hop, R&B, Disco, Gospel, Funk and original tracks written and performed by executive producer Nas, the mood is celebratory, yet also heartfelt during the latter part of the album. Other contributing artists include Miguel, Raury, Nile Rodgers, Janelle Monae and Jaden Smith. Listen below via Spotify.
