This Is My Hood is a Red Bull Media House series exploring thriving hip-hop spaces around India.
The four-part video documentary series highlights four neighbourhoods in four Indian cities, where the hip-hop scene has been consistently growing over several years. https://www.redbull.com/in-en/projects/this-is-my-hood
These neighbourhoods are Marol in Mumbai, Lake Gardens in Kolkata, Hauz Khas in Delhi, and Vyasarpadi in Chennai.
The docu series highlights how rap battles gave rise to a flourishing scene in Delhi, how local breakers discovered an abandoned warehouse in Lake Gardens and made it their own, how the village of Marol became an unexpected breeding ground for graffiti artists and breakers through support from residents, and how folk music in the suburb of Vyasarpadi was used as the base for rap and RnB artists in the impoverished Chennai neighbourhood.
