CountryBoy’s Struggle: Contact’s series of storytelling music videos which mix hip-hop and comedy tells 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, Michael is in poor spirits having been mocked by a group of MCs. His flatmate Peter tells him about a night of True School Hip Hop and he makes it his mission to find it.
Written and starring Maxwell Golden, who plays more than 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.
