(Blurb about the film after the jump)
“Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. is the internationally known rapper Lil' Wayne — his most recent album went platinum in a week, and he just might be the voice of his generation. But this ain't no VH1 rock doc. Rather, it is an intoxicating journey into the thoughts and world of an extremely complicated man whose creative force is something to behold. Lil' Wayne never stops recording — he has a portable studio that he carries around in a black bag, and it allows him to lay down a track anytime, anywhere. His work is his own: unfiltered, uncensored, raw, and powerful. Director Adam Bhala Lough has gained unbelievable access to the artist's public and private lives, and captures remarkably candid moments, such as Lil' Wayne recounting his first sexual experience, as well as him talking openly about his drug habits. Following him all over the country and to Amsterdam, Lough mixes fly-on-the-wall footage of Lil' Wayne in his hotel room and on his bus with artfully composed concert footage. The result is a shockingly intimate portrait of one of the most inspired (and eccentric) musicians of modern America.” — Sundance Film Festival 2009
