'Between the end of 1993 through 1995, an incredible number of important and influential hip-hop albums were first released—records that expanded what the genre could be and set its course for years to come.

Director Film maker Shomari Smith has conducted over 50 interviews with notable emcees, producers and DJs for this project. He has spent the past two years traveling the country to document the lives of the Souls of Mischief as well as capturing moments with some the most highly respected players in the music industry.
This documentary will show the Souls as you have never seen them before. They share childhood stories, give an inside look into their early creative process while making their legendary demo tape, they share personal stories about each album track from “93 ‘Til”, and they discuss the single “93 til infinity” and it’s longevity.
