‘Down With the King’ Gets Hailed on Digital June 28
GRAMMY-NOMINATED RAPPER & SONGWRITER
FREDDIE GIBBS STARS IN HIS DEBUT FEATURE ROLE
COMING TO DIGITAL ON JUNE 28TH
Rap star Money Merc (Freddie Gibbs) has been sent by his manager, Paul (David Krumholtz), to a rural house in the Berkshires to focus on his next album. Disenchanted with his music career and the 24/7 upkeep that such fame entails, Merc has no desire to write or record music. Instead, he spends most of his time at his neighbor’s farm learning about farming and enjoying the simplicity of country life. After Merc abruptly announces his retirement on Twitter, Paul rushes to the countryside to lure him back into the music industry.
The film has been selected in over 26 Film Festivals and was featured as part of the ACID lineup at CANNES and won the Grand Prize at DEAUVILLE and the Audience Award at the AMERICAN Film Festival (Poland).
