1st Trailer For Paramount+ Original Movie ‘As We Speak: Rap Music On Trial’

Paramount+ presents As We Speak: Rap Music On Trial – Official Movie Trailer #1 [HD]

Synopsis: Filmmaker J.M. Harper crafts an astonishing cinematic equivalent of the blistering emotional force of rap music itself in “As We Speak: Rap Music On Trial”, a Sundance 2024 competition entry.

Harper’s cinematic composition follows rap star Kemba surveying major artists in influential rap music centers including triple 2024 Grammy winning rapper Killer Mike from Atlanta, and more influential musicians in New Orleans, Chicago, London, and Kemba’s hometown, The Bronx.

Harper and Kemba uncover how rap has been not only irrationally demonized in the past 30 years and how racist responses to the art form have been used to secure unjust convictions in the U.S.’s carcel system, but how this disturbing trend is part of a larger 400-year history of the criminalization of Black music and Blackness itself.
