Synopsis by Mark Deming
While hip-hop is widely perceived as an African-American community, the truth is the Hispanic American community has long played a vital part in the rap music scene, and this documentary offers a look at the past, present and future of the Latin Hip-Hop phenomenon and some of the prime movers and shakers in rap from the barrio. Pass The Mic! includes performance footage and interviews with a number of pioneering artists, including Mellow Man Ace, Proper Dos, Delinquent Habits, Capone, Lighter Shade of Brown, and many more.
