According to the “RapCaviar Presents'” official synopsis, “With a focus on candid, riveting storytelling,” viewers can expect “each episode [to] examine a deep-rooted issue affecting hip hop artists, their fans, and society at large, including explorations of mental health, women’s sexuality, the criminalization of rap, social media criticism, and the cost of virality.”
The synopsis continued, “Featuring commentary from cultural tastemakers, media experts, and extensive historical context, the series highlights tales of triumph, disruption, empowerment, and redemption. Follow a new generation of artists as they confront contentious topics, reshape the culture, and challenge societal norms while making some of the most impactful music of their careers.”
Recently, Hulu shared an exclusive “RapCaviar Presents” clip featuring Tyler and Pharrell Williams. In the short video, Tyler credited the Grammy Award-winning producer for changing his career trajectory. “I didn’t have a father. I didn’t have a big brother, [and] I didn’t have a big cousin,” the Odd Future artist stated. “So, as a kid, since 10/11, Pharrell is who I looked at.” The clip revealed moments between the pair throughout their friendship. After a studio conversation with the Virginia Beach native, Tyler said he went home and wanted to “change everything.”
