LeBron James-produced doc ‘How Music Got Free’ releases trailer

Eminem will join James as executive producer of the two-part docuseries.

The trailer for LeBron James’ latest project has just dropped.

Paramount+ on Monday released a preview of “How Music Got Free,” a two-part documentary series produced by James and Marshall “Eminem” Mathers. The series “chronicles the fascinating and often funny story of the technology-induced disruption that changed music in the late 1990s and early 2000s. File-sharing technology, combined with the insatiable demand for new music, created both the means and the motive for millions of young people to engage in outright theft – and be celebrated for it,” according to a press release.

“How Music Got Free” will feature interviews from some of music’s biggest names, including Eminem, 50 Cent, Timbaland, Jimmy Iovine, Rocsi Diaz, Rhymefest and Steve Stoute, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Alexandria Stapleton directs the documentary with production from James’ SpringHill Company, Eminem’s Shady Films, Interscope Films and Warner Bros. Unscripted Television.

“As a filmmaker, I wanted to challenge the narrow lens of who we think of as tech innovators,” Stapleton told THR. “’How Music Got Free’ is a story that proves brilliant minds can be found in unlikely places, like the rural, forgotten factory town of Shelby, North Carolina.”
