The Defiant Ones is one of those rare gifts that come ever so often to bless, inspire and shake things up within pop culture.
Styled in a seamless and beautifully captured chronological detailing of successive events dating back from 60s Brooklyn and 70s Compton, the four-part special musical documentary follows everything that floated around musical geniuses and entrepreneurial partners Dr Dre and Jimmy Lovine, who's partnership eventually led them to close a multi-billion dollar deal with Apple for their headphone invention.
But far before that, their musical virtuosity and boldness in business brought their path together, a fascinating relationship that the likes of Eminem, P. Diddy, will.i.am and amongst other greats - Snoop Dogg explore in greater detail as they give personal accounts from the premiere episode. The behind-the-scenes and candid conversations are interspersed with artistic graphics and archival footage that bolsters the show's perfect edits.
The Defiant Ones offers the audience an unparalleled dive into the creative and intellectual spaces, relationships, moves, triumphs and failures that would later create a mammoth of a profitable empire, an indelible legacy and really timeless classics.
