A new trailer for the upcoming Netflix series "The Get Down" is out, complete with an original new song from New Yorker and hip-hop legend Nas.

The series from Baz Luhrmann focuses on a group of teenagers in the South Bronx of the 1970s, but the 30-second trailer is short on new plot details and dialogue, apart from one character at the end uttering the dramatically vague statement, "That's how we're gonna go down: do or die."

The first six episodes of "The Get Down" will debut on Aug. 12, and while Bronxites have expressed concerns about how their borough will be portrayed in the show, Luhrmann assured them at an event last winter that he would seek to move past the negative stereotypes of The Bronx.
