The Breaks (VH1) – Premieres 20th February – Renewed

Rap based drama set in the 90’s that follows on from the VH1 film of the same name. In it it follows Nikki, who has just landed a job to assist artist manager Barry Fouray who is looking into the possibilities of starting his own record label. DeeVee, Nikkis friend and music producer who is under suspicion of Ahm, the rapper he is working who believes DeeVee is a police informant. And Ahm, who Nikki is trying to get on Barry Fourays books as the latest up and coming star, and is under police investigation for murder.

For an VH1 drama it’s surprisingly good, with it being a grittier take on the rap industry than the almost comic like The Get Down, or the trashy soap opera style of Empire.
