UPDATE 1/17: Yikes! It looks like the video’s been taken down. But you can catch the trailer below, which also gives you the option to rent or buy the film.

This documentary feature pulls back the curtain on the world of ‘working class’ rappers. The film spotlights independent artists struggling to find a balance between making a living and pursuing their art alongside the never-ending saga of age and relevance. Weaved together through a series of 30 plus interviews that are devoid of the ego so common in the business of music, especially hip-hop, the film traverses the country (USA) to explore the myths and misconceptions of life as a full-time rapper. Adult Rappers. A documentary stuck on the realness.

For the first time in an extended documentary former detainees at Rikers Island talk directly into camera about their experience in New York City’s largest and most notorious jail. RIKERS premieres on Nov. 15 at 10 PM on THIRTEEN.
