Movie Info

The backstage life of black New York rap musicians is the focus of this drama. They have a constant struggle to balance their desire for acceptance and success with their sense of what integrity means in their communities. In this story, three disparate young men have joined together to pursue their dream. "I" (Ron Brice) is in pursuit of respect from his community, Rich (Jeffrey Sams) is obsessed with the act of creation itself, and Kayam (Darryl "Chill" Mitchell) is his cousin, who frequently must make peace between the two other men if they are to work together.

All Critics (2)

The black rap scene deserves a better film than this Sundance indie, which encompasses too many issues, none too deep.
