The only thing better than the bars in any rapper's verse is understanding what the smart play on words, and the layered storytelling, is all about.

The ability to decipher, or simply understand, the subject matter that informs such double entendres is what helps fans to be immersed in the words of any songs. Throw in a safe space for Hip Hop artists to reveal layers to their souls, reflect openly on the culture, converse about the cut-throat business of entertainment, and add their two cents on some of the most heated topics, and you have an absolute winner. 

So it goes without saying that Hip Hop's Untold Stories is a must-watch for any self-respecting lover of Hip Hop and the rich culture that attends to it. Every Monday at 21:30, Angie Martinez features some of Hip Hop's most recognized icons as they tell us the real deal behind some of the most talked-about stories in the culture. The fast-paced show offers viewers an opportunity to be immersed with the rich texture of the Hip Hop world. 

Their fave icons engaged honestly with the tough questions, while in many cases, finally open up on the most tightly protected secrets. The series puts a spotlight on the game's most influential without shying away from the daunting task of 'going there'. The real thrill here, however, is how they get to remove the middle man along with all the false narratives he brings. Instead, the likes of Nelly, Fabolous, Swizz Beatz, Wyclef Jean, DJ Khalid, and a slew of other top names jump in front of the rumour mill to get candid with Martinez.
