Hype Man: A Break Beat Play

Hype Man: A Break Beat Play

SYNOPSIS: Hype man Verb has been backing up front-man rapper Pinnacle since they were kids. Adding beatmaker Peep One to their group sparked a flame and now the interracial trio is flexing serious Hip-Hop muscle. But when an unarmed black teenager is shot by police, it forces the group to navigate issues of friendship and race. Hype Man asks: what does it mean to be an ally, and who has the responsibility to speak up in the face of social injustice?
