Apple Music teamed up with Vice to create an exclusive six-part series called 'The Score' that examines a variety of local music cultures from across the globe. The first episode of the docu-series, 'Reservation Rap' dives into the Native American hip hop scene of Minnesota, where Ojibwe tribe members use sound to express their unique cultural identity.

Other episodes explore local music culture in parts of the world like Brazil and Vietnam, promising interest for every viewer. In order to round out the experience even after an episode has finished, there's a companion Apple Music playlist to go along with each segment.

The documentary series is available only on Apple Music, which is in line with a number of media platforms hoping to entice viewers by creating original series that can only be viewed through one provider.
