Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
The video depicts a young man picking up a mysterious black disc that turns out to be a symbiote. The boy gets onto a bus, where he passes the symbiote on to another person, who then passes it on to another person, and so on and so forth.

So he shut you down entirely?
I don't know if I would say "shut down"...
Really? Because it sounds like he heard your idea, took a giant shit all over it, used that shit to fertilize a garden growing organic, certified GMO-free vegetables... which he then ate and shit all over your idea again.
OK. I'll say "shut down."

Where "Where "Hamilton" introduced history to the live stage, "Bodied" brings rap to the big the screen
On day six of 2018, music video and indie film director Joseph Kahn, and writer Alex Larsen (Kid Twist "King of the Dot") presents a street spoken word battle rap film that surpasses it's producer Eminem's 2002 "8 Mile". While this in-your-face, loud (sound track by Eminem ft. dr. Dre and music by Brain Mantia and Melissa Reese), fast moving and at times crude delivery in dialogue film may not be everyone's cup of tea, the performances, relevant dialogue, comedic tone, interesting special effects and the opportunity to peak into the underground world of battle rap should to be missed. Where "Hamilton" introduced history to the live stage, "Bodied" brings rap to the big screen. Enter young college caucasian grad student Adam (Disney "Austin & Ally" star Calum Worthy), smack in the middle of a competition trying to explain the language spoken within battle rap to his equally out of place girlfriend Maya (Rory Uphold - "HelLA" TV). Doing his graduate thesis on "battle rap" and the use of the "N" word, Adam knows the lingo and all the players. Quickly he befriends lead battle rapper Behem Grymm (Jackie Long "The Comebacks" 2007) who takes him on as a reluctant protege. Once in, Adam realizes he's got it in him to battle rap, combining his his smart boy eduction and historic knowledge of the craft. Making a terrific reappearance on the big screen is the mature Anthony Michael Hall ("Sixteen Candles" 1984), as Adam's well respected literary professor and father. The film is also filled by many of today's battle rappers, who also coached the films stars in the craft. This is a well made indie film, packed with comedy and drama, that will surly be a huge stepping stone for its director, writer and especially it's main stars Calum Worthy and Jackie Long. You will want to be one of the first to see this film. "Bodied" was screened at the Palm Springs International Film Festival 2018.
