Watch Tales Online

Tales is a 60-minute scripted anthology series of "song stories" weaving classic hip-hop songs into visually stunning 3-act narratives. Far beyond the music video or the live event, "TALES" brings hip-hop alive in a completely new way for television. With "TALES," each song's lyrics are imagined as cinematic adventures with a different director and screenwriter per song story. The series is a multi-platform cross-collaboration with TIDAL, the global music and entertainment platform, where the director's cut versions of each episode will live exclusively after premiering on BET. Subscribers will be able to stream the series on their web browser or through the TIDAL mobile app. "TALES" is produced and created by Irv Gotti and his Visionary Ideas production company.

Premiere Date: Jun/27/2017
