A diverse hip hop trio is on the verge of making it big on national TV, when a police shooting of a Black teen shakes the group to its core, forcing them to confront questions of race, gender, privilege and if/when to use their art as an act of protest. When the Hype Man takes matters into his own hands, the ensuing beef exposes the long buried rifts that divide them. Will it tear them apart or can they find a way to still breathe together?

“Hype Man is a complex and challenging treatment of race relations in the U.S.– indispensable viewing in these days of Trump.” The Arts Fuse
