Under the Radar DVD of the Week: "This is Primal Rap"
“This Is Primal Rap”
Crank the amps up to 11 and brace yourself for some hip-hop hijinks in “This Is Primal Rap,” a mockumentary that hopes to do for rap music what Rob Reiner’s landmark 1984 comedy, “This Is Spinal Tap,” did for heavy mental rock.
Producers of this underground DVD say they intend to shed some light on the Los Angeles rap scene while also poking a little edgy, street-smart fun at the macho clichés of hip-hop culture.
In a freewheeling fictional tale that features appearances by L.A. rappers KRS-One, 2Mex, Rifle Man, Awol-One, Riddlore and many more, the movie follows two aspiring young rappers as they struggle to break in to the cutthroat music business.
Problem is, Lil’ Young, a.k.a. “The Prophet to make Prophet,” and Guardlyc, “the human guitar beatbox,” are decidedly short on real talent. Nevertheless, Lil’ Young’s concerned stage father hires a foreign production company to follow the rappers around and document the duo’s rocky rise to fame. And, say producers “in the fashion of ‘Spinal Tap,’ ‘Borat’ and ‘The Office,’ comes a film where comedy is based on the truth.”
