Much better than I expected.
1 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My partner was recording some tracks when the director was in Minneapolis filming for his documentary. So he got a cameo - which was the main reason we went to the Minneapolis premier of this film. I'll admit - I didn't expect much. But "Pick Up The Mic" is really very good, and arrives at a lot of unexpected insights into the differences between "gay rappers" and "rappers who are gay." There are some surprisingly moving moments, and some great music, and some honest assessments of what the scene means. I felt like it could have used some editing (i.e. cutting) near the end - it's a little padded with performance footage. But overall, it's an impressive and inspiring piece of work. Recommended.
