Eminem steps out of the spotlight to produce this hilarious and frightening tale of a progressive white graduate student who finds success – and sparks outrage – when his interest in battle rap as a thesis subject turns into a competitive-performing obsession.
Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness People’s Choice Award, as well as Fantastic Fest’s Audience Award, BODIED – written by battle rapper Kid Twist (aka Alex Larson) – unflinchingly explores race, cultural appropriation and the politics of battle rap. Rated R for strong language and sexual content throughout, some drug use and brief nudity. 120 minutes.
Making this event even more exciting, GZ battler Blackademiks will be on hand for an intro and demonstration. Blackademiks has battled for iBattle, King of the Dot, 413 Battle League and Spittaz Battle League. Check him out at Blackademiks!
