“Reservation Rap” explores the unique hip-hop style from the Ojibwa tribe located in Minnesota’s Red Lake Reservation. Episodes will land every other week and highlight music from Brazil, Iceland, and Vietnam.

Here’s a peek at the first episode:

In talking with The Hollywood Reporter, Vice’s Kelly Fulton said the series was inspired by the 2007 documentary “Heavy Metal in Baghdad” that explored the love of hard rock in the war-torn country:

“That doc sparked exactly what we wanted to do with this series, which is telling under reported and under represented stories around the world through the artists that are scoring those cultural climates,” says Fulton.

Any Apple Music subscriber can also listen to the playlist from each episode that features artists from the show.

You can view “Reservation Rap” now on Apple Music.

An Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month or $14.99 monthly for a family membership with up to six people.

Back in February, news leaked that Apple is bankrolling a new scripted TV series starring the company’s own Dr. Dre.

The six-episode series is apparently named “Vital Signs” and is a semi-autobiographical look at the rapper. It won’t sugar coat Dre’s rise and features violence and sex.

Apple previously financed Taylor Swift’s “1989 World Tour Live” concert video that is only available to view through its streaming service.
