Movie Info

This documentary focuses on Cuban hip-hop group El Cartel, composed of rappers Soandry, Magyori and Mikki Flow. They have helped organize the International Festival of Rap Cubano, the nation's sole celebration of rap music. The government puts a halt to the fest, citing weather concerns. However, El Cartel feels that the officials who stopped the gathering were trying to censor the artists set to perform. Undeterred, El Cartel and their fellow musicians begin to plan a more clandestine event.
