VH1′s groundbreaking film Planet Rock: The Story of Hip Hop and the Crack Generation is one of the most riveting documentaries we’ve seen on the network (you can watch the film’s trailer above). This amazing work, which was co-produced and narrated by Ice-T, centers on the rise of crack cocaine an its impact on popular culture in the 1980s, and we’re thrilled to announce that it just received two nominations for the 33rd Annual News And Documentary Emmy Awards. The nominations, in Outstanding Achievement in Writing and Outstanding Arts and Culture Programming, only further what we already knew about the film and it’s importance: it’s a must-watch. Congratulations to everyone in our VH1 family who were involved in the film’s production.
The Emmy winners will be announced in a ceremony to be held October 1, 2012.
