It first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and then had a limited theatrical release earlier this month. Produced by Eminem and Joseph Kahn’s Bodied is now available on Youtube Premium as of today.
In order to watch the film, you have to be a Youtube premium member. It was written by former battle rapper Alex Larsen, a.k.a. Kid Twist. The battle rap film’s synopsis is this: “a naive fanboy named Adam who drags his girlfriend Maya to an underground rap battle to research his thesis on the use of the N-word in battle rap. Soon the polite white liberal outsider turns his poetry skills into spitting his own devastating bars on stage. Under Grymm’s tutelage, he becomes a rising star in the minority-dominated space where stereotypical jokes tread a fine line between satire and violence.”
The cast includes rapper Dumbfounded, ATL’s Jackie Long, The Avenger’s Walter Perez, several notable battle rap stars like Dizaster, Hollow da Don, Loaded Lux and more! Check out the clip below:
