Learning ... rap
20 March 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Who's bad? As in good ... in what they are doing. Or as in when Michael Jackson was asking. Which is kind of the same. But in this case it is Asian American breaking into the rap scene. Especially one who is called Dumbfoundead is really good - when it comes to Rap battles. I mean when Drake drops your name, that kind of means something.

Having said that, be aware of the language being used. If you are easily offended this may not be something you want to watch. There is a lot of cursing and a lot of insulting going on. The story of the individuals is really enticing and interesting. I really liked how the documentary was build and you get to root for those characters who try to break into something they all love. At times it may feel a bit condenscending - or overly sensitive/touchy to certain subjects, but it is how it is. Certain influences may work against some of them being succesful ... which is also a shame. Good insight and interviews
