All heads listen up! This disc is bloody sensational and if you love your hip hop then you simply must own this disc. Containing five episodes of this very cool show, we get taken behind the scenes of what's hot and what's not in the world of rap with interviews with the biggest names in the game and what's new.

Not having cable TV on yet, I am not sure if there are any dedicated shows to rap currently on Australian television so for us ordinary folk, thanks to Stomp, we are able to get a little bit of that flava that till now we've been missing.

Hip Hop Nation can be likened to MTV but just with news about the rap world and what makes it tick. We are in luck too as these guys have access to the stars that you want to know about from both the new and old schools of rap. Over the course of this DVD you'll get to see 50 Cent, Pharell Williams, Suge Knight, Marley Marl and many many more including Jigga Jay Z.

There are other things that are covered during the disc such as do's and don'ts with haircuts in the rap world! Also there are a stack of videos to check out on this disc, standouts being Jurassic 5, 50 Cent, The Streets and of course Missy Elliot with her freaky vid for Work It. For those who haven't heard of The Streets, peep them out, a Pommy crew with a damn fine sound.

The disc is really well put together and the quality is certainly nothing to be sniffed at with the visuals up to par with what you'd expect from a television show. Audio pumped through the stereo system and all things said and done it's a great presentation.

Stomp have a number of the Hip Hop Nation disc and I hope to bring the rest of them to you shortly.
