How Music Got Free By Eminem & LeBron To Premiere on Paramount+

How Music Got Free is set to premiere soon on Paramount+.

The two-part documentary, produced by Eminem and LeBron James, will launch on June 11 in the U.S. and Canada on Paramount+, followed by its release on June 12 in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Italy.

The series, which debuted at SXSW earlier this year, explores the captivating and often humorous story of how technology disrupted the music industry in the late ’90s and early 2000s. The advent of file-sharing technology, coupled with an insatiable demand for new music, created an environment where millions of young people engaged in widespread music piracy — and were often celebrated for it.

Directed by Alexandria Stapleton (Reggie), the documentary is a collaboration between Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, James’ SpringHill Company, Interscope Films, and Shady Films.

How Music Got Free features interviews with notable figures such as Eminem, 50 Cent, Timbaland, Jimmy Iovine, Rocsi Diaz, Rhymefest, and Steve Stoute, among others.

“As a filmmaker, I wanted to challenge the narrow lens through which we view tech innovators,” Stapleton stated. “This story shows that brilliant minds can be found in unexpected places, like the rural, overlooked factory town of Shelby, North Carolina.”

Stapleton serves as executive producer alongside Stoute and Stephen Witt, with contributions from Marshall “Eminem” Mathers and Paul Rosenberg for Shady Films; LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Jamal Henderson, and Philip Byron for SpringHill; Bridgette Theriault, Dan Sacks, and James Chapman for Warner Bros. Unscripted Television/Telepictures; Steve Berman, John Janick, and Anthony Seyler for Interscope Films; and Bruce Gillmer and Michael Maniaci for MTV Entertainment Studios.
