As we diversify our #StreetBeat Channel we occasionally get press releases from our friends in New York and LA that we absolutely love and can’t wait to get the word out about. In one of the most stylish items we’ve seen in a while, may we introduce to you, BAD RAP. BAD RAP is premiering on VOD Tuesday, May 23 on all major platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Vudu.
BAD RAP follows the lives and careers of four Asian-American rappers trying to break into a world that often treats them as outsiders. Featuring dynamic live performance footage and revealing interviews.
“Hip-hop culture has transcended many racial and cultural boundaries after its founding in the ’70s by African-American and Latino youth in the South Bronx. Since then, rappers have emerged as legitimate pop culture stars around the world and hip-hop’s global movement has become increasingly more diverse. Yet the face of rap in America remains primarily black, brown, and white.” says movie rep.
From director Salima Koroma and produced by Jaeki Cho, be on the lookout for this very cool release. From the battle rhymes of crowd-favorite Dumbfoundead to the tongue-in-cheek songs of Awkwafina; the unapologetic visuals of Rekstizzy to the conflicted values of Lyricks—BAD RAP paints a memorable portrait of artistic passion in the face of an unsung struggle. Style Lush TV, is really digging this.
