On the Come Up Movie: Trailer, Cast, Release Date


A hip-hop coming-of-age tale is heading to Paramount Plus, and we’ve got our first look at the upcoming film. “On the Come Up,” an adaptation of Angie Thomas’ New York Times bestselling novel of the same name, is billed as a “hip-hop love letter” that follows a young girl, Bri (Jamila C. Gray), and his dream of taking the battle-rap scene by storm.

The 30-second trailer, which premiered during this year’s BET Awards, offers a brief glimpse into the inspiring musical history. To honor the legacy of her late father – an underground hip-hop legend killed by gang violence – Bri is trying to pick up where he left off after his first hit went viral “for all the wrong reasons”. . In an effort to provide a better life for her family, she will find herself torn between staying true to who she is and conforming to a “fake gangsta role” imposed on her by the music industry.
