Gonna Sip That Sip, Hit That Dip: The Emerging Queer Hip Hop Movement
Directed by Chasson Gracie and Willyum Beck
Produced by Marcel Salas
This is a short documentary about an emerging scene which is on the verge of becoming mainstream - the queer hip-hop scene. In addition to documenting the scene, we also wanted to challenge the assumption that the 'queer hip hop' movement is progressing solely because the US is more open to homosexuality compared to 10 years ago. The ethnographic/interview approach uncovered a plethora of other variables that can be attributed to the increased visibility and success of gay hip-hop artists and the broader movement.
