ABout The 5th Element
Back then I only knew him as a visual artist I bought art from, but he contacted me, asking if I was down to head up an idea he had. After talking for a few times, the idea gained a name.
"The 5th Element"
In the Summer of 2016, I was looking forward to going to University and starting a new chapter in my life. At that point, I was just a few days off leaving a writing position after being there for three years. But then I got a call from now friend Martin Askem.
With the seed given, I ran with it and spent the next few months creating the site you're on now. And on the 5th November, 2016, "The 5th Element" was born!

What's Good? I'm Charlie and I am the Director & Owner of this fine site. Born in '96, London, England. I am a graduate of Southampton Solent University in Film & Television and I'm also a screenwriter.
Hip-Hop, to me, is a learning tool. To gain life experience from the most extraordinary people who have lived lives I can never imagine living. It is why "The 5th Element" is important to me. Hip-Hop has become a multi-billion dollar industry but people my age have no idea who the pioneers are, how it was all about community and creative ambition. I find that the history of this genre can teach the young people of today in a fun way. Not just about music but about life. I'm not the best dancer, I sure can't MC, DJ or do graffiti. But as a writer, I always appreciate a great story and Hip-Hop itself is a fascinating story I want to document.
