Aminé – Becoming (Mockumentary) [Video]

Posted on May 22, 2017 by


‘Becoming Aminé’ heads back to the corridors of Portland’s Benson Polytech, the rapper’s actual alma mater, for a look at how he and his crew try to get his music played by mysterious local DJ, Johnny James. By its end it’s easy to see how camaraderie and absurdity intertwine in his world view. “I didn’t want to bring you back to the home where I grew up and say, ‘Oh look, I grew up in the hood,” he says. “Everyone does that. I wanted to show you a day from my past, from high school with my friends, that speaks to who I am today.”
