On the come up!
Paramount+ is stepping into the battle rap arena with Sanaa Lathan‘s directorial debut ‘On The Come Up‘ starring newcomer Jamila Gray, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Cliff ‘Method Man’ Smith, Mike Epps, and more in the buzzy coming-of-age drama that premiered at the famed Toronto Film Festival.
We caught up with the beloved actress, Jamila Gray, and beloved author Angie Thomas (‘The Hate U Give’) to talk the coming-of-the age drama, their faveor, and more in our interviews you can enjoy below:
Based on the New York Times’ #1 best-selling novel by Angie Thomas, ‘On The Come Up’ is the story of gifted 16-year-old rapper Bri who attempts to take the battle rap scene by storm in order to lift up her family and do right by the legacy of her father–a local hip hop legend whose career was cut short by gang violence.
But when her first hit song goes viral for all the wrong reasons, she finds herself torn between the authenticity that got her this far and the false persona that the industry wants to impose upon her.
Peep the trailer below:
“We are thrilled to bring a truly inspiring film about fighting for your dreams to the service this fall,” said Tanya Giles, Paramount+’s chief programming officer in an interview with Deadline. ‘On The Come Up’ is a moving love letter to hip hop and an entertaining film for all ages.”
‘On The Come up’ is now playing in select theaters and streaming exclusively on Paramount+.
