The Culture: A Chicago Based Hip Hop Documentary
Presented by Lyrical Lemonade
Shot / Directed by Cole Bennett

This film is to show you the versatility of Chicago as it is a city that truly cannot be pinpointed when it comes to genre of hip hop. You will se different perspectives of the city throughout The Culture, yet everyone is chasing the same dream. Although violence is an aspect of Chicago that you cannot be ignorant to, this city is way more than just that. This film intentionally has no narration for the reason that narrations are intended to mold a perspective - this is for you to form your own. I hope everyone enjoys it, I spent a lot of time putting this together!

My apologies for the audio problems, I used an iPhone microphone to capture the audio due to it being a no budget film. You have to work with what you got.

Songs played + everyone involved are listed at the end of the film.


The harsher side of Chicago has been the focus of discussion over the past years. This documentary focuses on a different aspect: the thriving culture surrounding Chicago’s hip-hop. The documentary was made by Cole Bennett from Lyrical Lemonade, who explains, “I made this documentary because Chicago is labeled as such a negative city to a lot of people, yet Chicago is so much more than that. We have a wonderful hip hop scene that can truly be identified as a culture.”

Throughout the film, Bennett talks with Twista, Chance The Rapper’s father, Lucki Eck$, Taylor Bennett, DLOW, Joey Purp, and many others.

One of the most powerful moments comes around the 32:00 mark, when Chance’s father talks about the time one of Chance’s friends was killed, and what impact that had on Chance’s decision to pursue a career in rap.
