Film Starring ASAP Rocky, 'Dope' Premiers In USA

'High-school senior Malcolm (Shameik Moore) and his friends Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) bond over '90s hip-hop culture, their studies and playing music in their own punk band. A chance encounter with a drug dealer named Dom lands Malcolm and company at the dealer's nightclub birthday party; when the scene turns violent, they flee -- with the Ecstasy that Dom secretly hid in Malcolm's backpack. A wild adventure ensues as the youths try to evade armed thugs who want the stash.'

 

Initial reviews today, a day after the film premiered in the USA have been very positive on the healthy dose of references to 90s culture and hip hop with inclusions of modern hip hop too. In the UK we will have to wait until September to see how ASAP Rocky fairs on the big screen.
