VICE | Rising from the Tokyo Projects

We follow rappers Kohh and Mony Horse into the projects where they grew up, surrounded by drugs, violence, and death. After discovering a knack for music-making, the two rappers, alongside their manager 318 and their crew, make the best out of their situation by becoming the face of Hip Hop. This film helped launch the career of Kohh, arguably the most influential name in Japanese rap today.
