VICE may have recently launched its very own television channel, VICELAND, but the media giant is still teaming up with other outlets for original content — the latest of which is an exclusive six-part documentary series for Apple Music. Dubbed The Score, the series takes inspiration from VICE’s 2007 documentary Heavy Metal in Baghdad — an exploration of the heavy metal subculture that thrived throughout the Iraq War — and will explore local music scenes across the globe. Said VICE creative director Kelly Fulton:

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… Not only will we tell these stories, we’re actually giving these musicians a platform that they otherwise wouldn’t have had.

That platform Fulton mentions will come in the form of an Apple Music playlist for each individual episode — each of which will be chock full of songs by the artists featured in the series.

The very first episode of The Score, highlighting Minnesota’s Native American hip-hop scene in “Reservation Rap,” can be streamed now in its entirety while future episodes will take viewers to the likes of Brazil, Vietnam and Iceland.
