So as a white kid growing up in the 90s all I did was listen to rap music. I was picked on and bullied for it as it was not the 'done thing' and constantly called wigger. My passion was genuine and I embraced the culture and still do.
So.... I had minimal expectations here. I was expecting 8 mile revamped. How wrong was I.... This movie touches on some really key stereotypes and misconceptions about rap in general and more importantly the appropriation of black culture.
Storyline was basic but it paved the way for thought provoking dialogue and I would suggest if you don't get what I mean then this movie was not made for you.
Since eminem every white kid wants to be a rapper and this is movie is a satirical take on that uneducated enthusiasm.
The underlying emotion after watching this is embarrassment. For all the millennials that think they 'get it'.
This movie is about race and perception masked in satirical humour.
A must watch for any real rap fan.
