Gifted 16-year-old rapper Bri (Jamila C. Gray) is determined to take the rap battle 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.
Based on the bestselling novel On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
