    Street Summer - Channel 4

    only watched "The Life of Rhyme" so far but thought it was really well done, especially liked the relationship made between jamaican patois intonations and the rhythms of MCing in UK (and I guess jamaican music in general). Really great selection of MC's being interviewd doing verses aswell.
