Hip-hop, originating from a small block in the Bronx, has evolved into a global phenomenon, marked by the world's recognition and celebration of its 50-year legacy in 2023. This brand new special, hosted by Lenny S., acknowledges the future of the genre and takes us on an international journey with today's biggest hip hop artists as they find musical inspiration in cities around the world.

DJ Khaled, a major force in the music industry, mogul, executive, mega producer and recording artist, known as the “Anthem King” and commonly referred to as the “Quincy Jones of Hip Hop & R&B”, has made dozens of chart topping hit records featuring Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Drake, Chris Brown, Ludacris, T.I., French Montana, Future, Big Sean, Rick Ross, John Legend, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, among others. Khaled has always found inspiration in the dancehall music of Jamaica. In 2021, he made history uniting reggae legends Buju Banton, Capleton, Barrington Levy and Bounty Killer for his track “Where I Come From.”

Amazon Music Breakthrough Artist, Lola Brooke, who is also releasing her project Dennis Daughter (Deluxe Version) on April 19, does an intimate exploration of Paris with Lenny S.  The Brooklyn born rapper, who took the world by storm in 2022 with her viral hit single "Don't Play With It," has always dreamed of visiting Paris and understanding the origins of rap in France. Lenny takes Lola on a tour of some of his favorite places as she finds inspiration for her Amazon Music Original track “Touch Down in Paris.” The special also introduces noted guests along the journey who help the artists find inspiration for their music including Buju Banton, Usain Bolt, Mokobe, Mr. Leggo, Jean “Biggie” Sebastian and more.

Lenny Santiago, also known as Lenny S., is a veteran music business executive with over two decades of experience in the music industry.  Santiago has played a pivotal role in shaping modern hip-hop culture as we know it, most notably known for working closely with the iconic rapper Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter.
