Where We're From: Rise Of L.A. Underground Hip Hop

WHERE WE'RE FROM captures the rise of underground Hip Hop in Los Angeles during the 90s and 2000s told through Elements, a group of four friends that promoted a weekly club that honored the "elements of Hip Hop" - MCing, DJing, dance, and graffiti art. Part of a generation that found community and refuge through Hip Hop, Elements' audiences returned week after week because they knew they would witness craft and skill, something that at the time was getting lost with the injection of cash and promotion of negative stereotypes into Hip Hop culture by major record labels and commercial media outlets.
