Lo-Tec in Rhyme Spitters

Rhyme Spitters

2005 NR

This frenetic documentary follows a freestyle battle rap tournament held in Chicago's Wicker Park in the summer of 2004. In the energetic competition, more than 60 Chicago hip-hoppers try to out-rap one another for a $1,000 cash prize. Rhyme Spitters combines interviews with competitors, footage of spontaneous sidewalk altercations and debates between judges and, of course, plenty of battle scenes full of uncensored diatribes and witty zingers.
