Movie Info

Rap star Money Merc has been sent by his manager, Paul, to a rural house in the Berkshires to focus on his next album. Disenchanted with his rap career and the 24/7 upkeep that such fame entails, Merc has no desire to write or record music. Instead he spends most of his time at his neighbor's farm learning about farming and enjoying the simplicity of country life. After Merc abruptly announces his retirement on Twitter, Paul rushes to the countryside to lure him back into the music industry.

Harmony of emotion and visuals makes "Down with the King" a complete circuit. Each of its parts compliments the others. But in the end, the film remains as humble as Mercury himself.
