Here’s a film reminding us that true hip-hop is political. In this era of extrajudicial killings under the reign of the current president, Duterte, young Hendrix sets his sights on underground rap battles in the slums of Pandacan, Manila. But his true enemies don’t have ears for his words. In the face of state-inflicted terror, Hendrix’s meeting with bookstore-owner Doc, once a radical poet, creates a striking parallel between the days of dictator Marcos and the present.
