Watch the movie trailer of Bodied below:
A satire set in the world of competitive battle rap, BODIED is the story of Adam Merkin (Calum Worthy), a progressive grad student who becomes an accidental battle rapper after encountering Behn Grym (Jackie Long), a respected icon in the merciless sub-culture of poetic personal insults. As Adam makes his politically-incorrect climb up the ranks, he risks alienating his father, a renowned writer and tenured professor at Adam?s university, along with his skeptical girlfriend Maya, and all of his academic friends. His success breeds outrage however; Adam soon faces growing backlash on campus and the consequences of his controversial talent. BODIED explores the dangerous spaces of the world?s most multicultural and artistically brutal sport.
