    No one in particular i dont think. Maybe his character was inspired by someone real, but he's just the older brother of Zeke's best friend and he's a graffiti artist so thats how he relates to hip hop. He's also into psychedelics and all spiritual and 🤬 , kind of like his father. They didnt go too much into the father's history, but based off of his clothing and the way he acted I would assume hes into psychedelics haha.

    Haha i wouldnt doubt it.

    That was the fastest ive watched a new show on netflix in forever. I hope they get Part 2 out on there ASAP.

    The scenes where older zeke is rapping (when the Nas rap recaps are playing) in the first episode it said that concert took place in 1997. I wonder what the timeline is going to be for the show and how far into hip hop they are going to go. Will be crazy to see the 🤬 Era hit and Gangsta rap become a popular thing.

    I think there is going to be issues between Shao and Zeke in the future seasons. Shao agreed to it eventually, but you could tell he was upset with the Raps being a big focus of their battle instead of just the DJ. Shao is also probably going to get Deeper into Fat Annies business and either get in trouble or killed.

    Nah not really. There is some nudity and drug use. Not much, but it is in there.

    I have the same idea about Marlene. Good Church girl getting into the famous life and having labels/people 🤬 her over and end up on drugs. Hope it doesnt happen but i just have a feeling it will. She is so 🤬 fine though.

    I felt like the writers and 🤬 have been heavy handed with Jalen Smith's character. If there is a basis for his character then it's Dondi. Dondi was the graffiti writer behind Zoro in Wild Style -even tho they had a writer playing that character, Dondi did all those pieces- and is probably the greatest writer of all time. Dondi was also a homosexual and an addict who died of AIDS, but that's not why we celebrate him. He's celebrated because he was such a prolific and skilled writer. Anyhow, the way they introduced that 🤬 was a lame way to push the story. I don't like that they brought a white dude in so Diz could discover himself and Mylene's record got broke. It felt like a reach, a rush, and an exaggeration of outsider importance on the story-line. There was definitely white folks at the inception of hip hop, definitely some 🤬 people, definitely some taboo things happening in NY, but it bothers me that he needed a 🤬 -white Obi Wan Kenobi to open doors for him. Feels like some narcissistic white 🤬 .

    The story is definitely building to Shao catching a bad one.
