Next month Netflix is scheduled to premiere a new original TV drama titled The Get Down. From executive producer Baz Luhrmann and rap legend Nas, the series chronicles 1970s the Bronx when disco was fizzling out and a new form of music was surfacing, hip-hop.

Jaden Smith, Giancarlo Esposito, Jimmy Smiths and Shameik Moore star in the upcoming musical drama, as the birth of hip-hop is told through lives, music, art and dance of the South Bronx kids who would change the world forever.

Here we get a look at the latest trailer for The Get Down, which is slated to debut on Netflix on August 12. The initial season will feature 13 one-hour episodes.
