LeBron James and Marshall “Eminem” Mathers are among the executive producers of director Alexandria Stapleton’s revealing account of the Internet’s early music pirates. Their file-sharing expertise in the late 1990s and early 2000s, epitomized by the rise of Napster, allowed millions of music fans to disrupt the industry by ripping songs and entire albums, ripping off the artists in the process. “I though Yahoo was a person,” Eminem admits regarding his naivety during the Internet’s growth spurt. Others weighing in on the phenomenon include 50 Cent, Timbaland and executive Jimmy Iovine.
