Summary Exploding the myth that Hip-Hop is merely 'rap music, ' "5 Sides of a Coin" is an overview of the worldwide phenomenon of Hip-Hop. Today Hip-Hop is a multi-billion dollar industry and a socially relevant culture. "5 Sides of a Coin" features exclusive interviews and footage of Hip-Hop's pioneers, insiders, critics and fans, including Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, Jazzy Jay, Gil Scott-Heron, RunDMC, Jurassic 5, De La Soul, Dilated Peoples, Beat Junkies, Q-Bert, Mix Master Mike, The Pharcyde, DJ Spooky, The Stereo MC's and many, many more Hip-Hop artists interviewed around the world. Their voices define the culture in their own words: the good, the bad and the flossy. Embraced by a diverse cross-section of youth, Hip-Hop is a powerful force, one that transcends its commercial trappings and controversies, that stands alone as the number one youth movement in the world
