The doc was directed, shot, produced, and cut by Mikey Alfred and Illegal Civ Cinema. For fans of the rapper, it will be great insight into his process of creating an album. The first 10 minutes of the documentary will be screened at the Illegal Civilization’s tent at this weekend’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, taking place at Los Angeles’ Exposition Park.
