Happy Thursday MMT Fam! I’m excited to share this trailer for the upcoming coming of age Netflix drama BEATS, starring Anthony Anderson, Uzo Aduba, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Khalil Everage, Dreezy, and Dave East.
Directed by Chris Robinson (ATL, The New Edition Story), “Beats” tells the story of a reclusive teenage musical prodigy (Khalil Everage) who forms an unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard (Anthony Anderson). United by their mutual love of hip hop, they try to free each other from the demons of their past and break into the city’s music scene. BEATS is the ultimate ode to Chicago’s South Side, and its long history of creating music that forms the city’s beating heart.
The film premieres on Netflix on June 19.
