About the Film
This dynamic and groundbreaking film follows the rise of Vision in Progress (VIP) a hip hop/hiplife group from the tough streets of Accra's predominantly Muslim Nima ghetto to global stages around the world. It explores the dynamics of political change, fame, and hustling as embodied in international African hip hop.
