Almost Dope, the first and only documentary film about race, hip hop, and Rhode Island.
In this film, we feature eight stories about hip hop in Rhode Island. Eight stories about kids discovering hip hop and making it their own. Eight stories about what it means to be a person of color growing up in Rhode Island. Eight stories about getting so close to cracking into the mainstream they could taste it, but then… nothing. While we don’t tell each and every story that is out there about hip hop culture and history in Rhode Island, these eight stories will stick with you and push the conversation forward. This is Almost Dope. And it’s made with love by Earf.
Thank you to everyone who shared their stories with us and who helped bring this project to life.
