Apple Music joins Vice for their upcoming documentary series about local music scenes around the world.
Modern media network Vice has become known for its in-depth, “real-life” documentaries on cultures, issues and the arts around the world. Now they’re teaming up with Apple’s new streaming service, Apple Music, for a series of documentaries focused on music scenes unique to a certain region.
The series, titled “The Score”, features 6 episodes from around the world featuring South African techno and Native American hip-hop. The first episode will explore Native Americans from the Red Lake Reservation in Minnesota whose raps are inspired by their ancestry from the Ojibwa people. These videos don’t come on their own either, each episode will feature a playlist on Apple Music so you can really explore the music of the cultures featured in the series.
The episodes will stream exclusively on Apple Music for its 11 million subscribers, and to tempt anyone who isn’t part of that crowd. That’s not unheard of for Apple Music, which has released a slew of exclusive video content since its launch last June. Exclusives so far have featured Drake’s hit music video on Hotline Bling, a Taylor Swift documentary and even a weekly show with DJ Khaled. It’s even been announced that Apple Music is doing a “dark drama” series with legendary rapper/producer/businessman Dr. Dre called Vital Signs.
You can stream the first episode of The Score on Apple Music now where Vice “dives into Minnesota’s Native American hip hop scene, where members of the Ojibwe tribe fuse stories of struggle and Indigenous consciousness to create a unique sound and identity. fully modern native.”
