Fund This: Bad Rap

Indie documentary explores the stories and struggles of Asian American rappers

Wait... there are Asian American rappers? YES. And somebody is making a documentary about them. Bad Rap is an independent feature documentary about the obstacles and successes of Asian American rappers, their history, and four friends coming up in the game.

Directed and produced by Salima Koroma, the film follows a few emcees you might have heard of: Dumbfoundead, Awkwafina, Rekstizzy and Lyricks, and includes interviews with several accomplished Asian American rap artists. The project is currently in the throes of a crowdfunding campaign to finish the feature.

Here's the trailer:

Looks great. Having followed some of these artists and their careers for years, I can't wait to see how this film comes together. But that can't happen without some help from good folks like yourself.

The goal is to raise $25,000 on Indiegogo by June 12. As I write this, they're less than half way there. For further information about the film, and to make a contribution, go to the Bad Rap Indiegogo page.
