Live Fast, Draw Yung

Described by LA Weekly as the ‘Foremost Doodler of Rap’, this hilariously endearing film follows Seattle’s 7-year-old rap portraitist, Yung Lenox, and his Dad, Skip – an unconventional artistic duo simultaneously navigating the tumultuous worlds of rap and modern-day-parenting. Through Lenox’s eyes, ears and encounters with rappers such as Kool Keith and Cam’ron, the film presents an innocent entry point into the idolized and often explicit world of hip hop. It reconsiders the age-old parental advisory debate and the realities of a kid growing up in an adult world. As Skip confronts criticism about his intentions and parenting, Lenox remains unfazed. In his world, art is ‘medium important’ compared to school, Lego’s and Minecraft. And that’s why the kid is everyone’s favorite artist.
