About Us

Mogul is a show about hip hop’s most iconic moments, told by the people who lived them. Season 2 dives into the birth of southern hip hop. It all started in Miami with the 2 Live Crew, a group that took hip hop and made it faster, harder, and nastier than anything anyone had heard before. But in 1990 their music was declared legally obscene, and what followed is known today as the most controversial trial in the history of hip hop. This group, this city and this trial changed the course of music history as we know it. Mogul Season 2 features exclusive interviews with Miami legends like Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Trina, Luke Campbell, Brother Marquis, Mr. Mixx, Walshy Fire, and more.

EMiami bass may have been thriving, but lyrical hip hop was still struggling to find a foothold in Miami.

In this episode: a pimped-out tour bus, a barrel full guns, and a lunchbox full of cocaine.

S2 Part 1: The Walls Were Sweating

EOur story starts with Luke Campbell of the 2 Live Crew getting thrown in jail. Luke wound up in handcuffs because, according to a Florida judge, his music was obscene.
