FX Networks's new series "Hip-Hop: Uncovered" aims to "reveals the untold story of how America’s streets helped shape hip hop culture from an expression of survival and defiance into music’s most dominant genre. The documentary series takes a deep dive into the paradox of America’s criminalization of the genre and its fascination with the street culture that created it and still exists within it."
The 4th episode of the series takes a look at the start of Eminem's career when he met Trick Trick, a prominent member of the Detroit rap scene and discovered Eminem.
