“Much of a new rap artist or startup’s success is due to the hype surrounding it, and thematically, this is what the show is about; how we maneuver our personal perceptions and realities.” – WRAL Tech Wire
Following the screening, we will have a discussion with the director and one of the series stars, Leroy Shingu Charlotte-born rapper Well$ who plays the character, Rakim Wilde. We will discuss topics like what hip hop artists can learn from startups and vice versa; collaborations between artists and startups and Milwaukee and Durham hip hop and startup scenes.
