And who are we to argue with the Godfather?

Below is just a lil sample of what we're up to.

RUN IT BACK

As expansive and historic as R&B is, documentation of its artists pales in comparison to that of other genres. That’s where Run It Back comes into play: through the series, we tell the stories of how household must-haves like D’Angelo’s Brown Sugar, Usher’s Confessions, and Erykah Badu’s Baduizm were made, and what it is that makes them such bonafide, tried-and-true

classics. A fresh take on music docs, Run It Back uses direct-to-lens, verite-follows

and “reacts” with stars, and combines it with archive, music, and scenic fan interviews, Run It Back does the serious business of defining a canon in an energetic, honest, and celebratory style.
