Hip-hop is not just about music, it’s a culture loved across the world. It is one of the most followed music genres and people love their Hip-hop icons. It is the music of the streets and we love stories coming from the streets. A great addition to these stories is ‘On The Come Up’. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Angie Thomas, it is the story of Brianna “Bri” Jackson, a 16-year-old girl from the fictional city of Garden Heights, who has to rise from the bottom to the top of the Rap world for two reasons – one being following the legacy of her late father, and second to save her family.

Starring Jamila Gray, Titus Makin Jr, Sanaa Lathan, Method Man, Lil Yachty, Mike Epps, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, GaTa, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, and Michael Anthony Cooper Jr., the film is the directorial debut of Veteran actor Sanaa Lathan who made waves for being one of the first black lead actresses of rom-com movies. With a 72% score on Rotten Tomatoes and some really good reviews, the movie is en route to making eyes turn.

While this movie is about the struggle of Bri as a Rap Star, it specifically shows the intricacies of being a female rapper in the hood. She goes viral for a song that people refer to as not just a song but a statement. And to keep it all up is what the movie is all about. With her father being one of the Rap legends to come out of Garden Heights, she wishes to prove that she is her father’s daughter. But she must do all this along with her family issues, her mother’s struggle with her job and so much more.


On the Come Up premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews. Paramount Pictures is distributing the movie across U.S theatres on September 23rd, 2022. If you plan to check the movie in a movie theatre (which is how it is supposed to be watched), you can book your tickets on Fandango.

Along with it’s theatrical release, the movie will also be available to stream on Paramount+ on the same day for audiences across the US, Canada, and Italy.

There’s no official information as to when it will be available to the rest of the world, but Paramount+ does intend to bring it to the World at a later date.
