Bad Rap.

A play on words, but one that reflects the very nature of this film. Part documentary, part drama and part unintentional comedy, Bad Rap's look on four Asian American rappers on their dreams, ambitions and doubts in the rap game is one that has never been examined to this extent.

Some of the most striking scenes is the family interactions of one of the focal characters in this story, Lyricks. Seeing him help out with his family's dry cleaner business must be a sight known by heart for many Korean Americans, and one that plucks that little string in your soul that generates the rain from your eyes.

If you're any type of fan of Hip-Hop, watch this film.
