An entertaining and informative look at the Canadian urban music industry and culture.
Drop The Beat is both an entertaining and informative look at the Canadian urban music industry and culture. Many Canadians haven't given the show much attention, arguing it, like previous Canadian television series, falls short of matching the slick aesthetic appearance of American shows. However, it is for this very reason that Drop The Beat is a clear-cut example of Canadian television at its best; the show has a very universal perspective, while still staying true to its Canadian roots. Drop The Beat acknowledges this crucial aspect and displays a positive outlook on hip-hop music and culture, something that mainstream media has rarely done since the beginning of hip-hop.
