About this show

Hype man Verb has been backing up front man rapper Pinnacle since they were kids. Adding beat-maker Peep One to their group sparked a flame and now the interracial trio is flexing serious hip-hop muscle. But when an unarmed black teenager is shot by police, it forces the group to navigate issues of friendship and race. The latest from break beat poet and playwright Idris Goodwin (How We Got On), Hype Man asks: what does it mean to be an ally, and who has the responsibility to speak up in the face of social injustice?
