This raw and passionate tale by exciting playwright Omari Newton digs deep into the lives of a hip-hop crew coming to terms, personally and professionally, with the police-shooting death of their DJ, Sammy. In the aftermath of the tragedy, this once-tight group struggles with grief in different ways. Do they carry on with canned beats? Or do they seek revenge?
With seismic hip-hop beats and powerhouse performances, Sal Capone raises a mighty fist to the difficult issues of our time – prejudice, homophobia and injustice – with grace and wit.
