On the Come Up Release Date: Plot | Cast | Trailer | Reviews | and Everything We Know So Far!

Twenty years after 8 Mile won an Academy Award, the narrative of a young female battle rapper torn between loyalty to her culture and the allure of commercialized mainstream rap is told in On the Come Up. Actress Sanaa Lathan makes her directorial debut with this film, which is based on Angie Thomas's novel The Hate U Give.

Battle rap has been an integral yet marginal part of Hip Hop culture from 2002's 8 Mile through 2017's indie-film Bodied, which Eminem also produced. On the Come Up aspires to convey the competitive sport that combines improvised theatre and outright disdain between two opponents.

All the info we have so far regarding “On the Come Up” is included below.

Honoring her father, a mysterious hip-hop icon who was murdered by gang members, Bri takes up where he left off, only to have her debut single go viral “for all the wrong reasons.” She'll be torn between staying loyal to herself and playing the “fake gangsta part” that the music industry demands of her in an effort to provide better opportunities for her loved ones.

The film's 30-second teaser trailer debuted during this year's BET Awards, and the full two-minute video will be shown at home beginning on August 28, 2022, during the MTV Video Music Awards.

Premise of the Trailer for “On the Come Up”

This trailer for On The Come Up premiered on August 29, 2022. The trailer, which runs for two minutes and ten seconds, begins with Bri, the film's protagonist, in a boxing ring, and it features several scenes that are likely taken from the film.

Bri was also seen giving her mom a bear hug. Bri then tells the audience, “In this legend, my father was once a king, and now I'm chasing his dream,” as the trailer begins. It also depicted instances of bullying at school and her mother's admission that she had been laid off. After that, Bri was filmed rapping in the boxing ring while creating her own original music. Kissing scenes between Bri and a boy were also seen in the trailer.


On the Come Up has a 91% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes as of September 20. (opens in new tab). Valerie Complex, who writes for the news site Deadline, said:

“On the Come Up looks and feels like it was made in the past because of how it was shot. John Singleton and the Hughes Brothers had a clear effect on where Lathan went with his music.”
