Almost Dope

Almost Dope, documentary about hip-hop in Rhode Island

The other day filmmakers Ana González and Jeff Matteis premiered Almost Dope, a feature length documentary about notable figures in the history of Rhode Island hip-hop. According to the filmmakers, the film looks at how the local hip-hop community uses music as a “blueprint for social resistance” in their lives, “to flow through the ruptures that come with the realities of living as a person of color in Rhode Island.” Featured artists date back to the mid-eighties and include Eddie “Cheeba Rock” Rivera, Return to Burn, Top Master Crew, The Magical Four, Danny D-Smooth Sykes, The Bold Island Troopers, Krook Rock, Paris Fisher and POAM, Chachi Carvalho, and Oliver Syde-Sho Arias
