Synopsis >

The NBA's all-time leading scorer, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and firebrand hip-hop musician, Chuck D, are not only icons of black culture in America but have also become voices of change across the globe. On the basketball court, Kareem was one of the best athletes of his time. But, he transcended the sport to stand for something bigger. When he joined Muhammed Ali in changing his name, it sparked a seismic shift in the conversation about the African American experience. Chuck D's hip hop group, Public Enemy, hit the airwaves with a mission. He helped elevate rap to a respected and politically charged musical genre. A wake-up call for modern America, Chuck's songs became anthems for a disaffected generation and set new standards for the music industry. Join these two game-changing visionaries as they shoot hoops, trade philosophies and pick through Kareem's storied collection of memorabilia.
