Product Description: 

Although it started in the South Bronx among African-American and Latino youths in the 70s, hip-hop culture today has transcended all racial and language boundaries. From the slums of France to nationally televised programs in Korea, rappers have emerged as legitimate pop culture stars around the world. Hip-hops global movement is diverse, but the face of rap in America remains primarily black, brown and white. Bad Rap follows the lives and careers of four Asian-American rappers trying to break into a world that often treats them as outsiders. Sharing dynamic live performance footage and revealing interviews, these artists make the most skeptical critics into believers. From battle rhymes of crowd-favorite Dumbfoundead to the tongue-in-cheek songs of Awkwafina, the unapologetic visuals of Rekstizzy to conflicted values of Lyricks, the film paints a memorable portrait of artistic passion in the face of an unsung struggle. This DVD features surround sound, English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired and special bonus features including Bad Rap promos with Awkwafina, Dumbfoundead and Rekstizzy, and exclusive deleted scenes: Dumbfoundead hosts a radio show, introduction to Dumbfoundead, Rekstizzy and Jaeki. Special interviews: Decipher on racism, Ebros thoughts on why its hard for women in rap, Far East Movement discusses the Asian rapper label, Timothy DeLaGhetto Traphik on acting black, Jin describes first battle, Jin explains how he got to 106 and Jin on authenticity, along with the official Bad Rap trailer.
