“It’s about the hustle, the vision and the American Hip-Hop dream,” Adrian Guillemet, Executive Producer, “Independent”
Hello media friend!
Reaching out to you re. “Independent” the Stage 13 original digital unscripted series that follows the artistry of hip-hop, while introducing four rappers on the rise: Futuristic, Sean Brown, Trinidad James and Reverie.
The :30 trailer for the series can be viewed by clicking the image above.
Screening at the Urban World Film Fest in NYC on Saturday, Sept 23 at noon, three of the series stars – Trinidad James (one of the top independent hip hop artists and also a star in the forthcoming “Pitch Perfect”), Futuristic (fresh off the WARP music tour) and Reverie (performing in Brooklyn on the 22nd) will be in NYC and available for media in New York City on September 21 and September 22 in person, or over the phone.
For every Drake, Kanye and Nicki, there are other artists carving their paths to sustain a place in music: a billion dollar industry that changes every minute of the day with new rules, new players. “Independent” is a series about and for those artists.
“Independent” will screen on Saturday, Sept 23 at noon at the AMC Empire with two additional Stage 13 series – the stoner comedy “High & Mighty” and the millennial relationship comedy “I Love Beka & Lucy.” All three series are part of Stage 13.
