CountryBoy’s Struggle: Contact’s series of storytelling music videos which mix hip-hop and comedy to tell the story of Michael Crompton, a man on a journey to become an MC – from the cliffs of Cornwall to the streets of London.
In this episode, after being kicked out of home by his Dad, Michael sets out to find his hip hop community and arrives… in London.
Written and starring Maxwell Golden, who plays over 40 characters in this tour-de-force performance, the series explores the tensions between what is meant by ‘rural’ and ‘urban’ and attempts to create a bridge between these two worlds. Follow CountryBoy’s Struggle.
