88rising (or 88⬆) is a record label and collective that brings together ten Asian hip-hop artists to work on projects from tracks to tours. Described as a home, a family and a creative energy, our film looks at what 88rising means to its members.

Seeing them on stage, on tour and in their downtime, we get a sense of how this dynamic works and how they balance so many different voices to create art that’s more than the sum of its super-talented parts.

We’re creative. We’re different. We always get things done.
