The Great Hip Hop Hoax 18 rating

The documentary that takes you inside the masterplan that convinced the whole music industry that two students from Dundee were the next big thing in Hip-Hop.

Documentary 2013 88 mins

Director: Jeanie Finlay



The Great Hip-Hop Hoax takes you behind the scenes of the biggest con in Hip-Hop history. When two boys - armed with nothing but questionable American accents and extreme cases of over-confidence – managed to infiltrate the music industry and get signed one of the biggest labels in America.

Featuring outrageous interviews and tall tales you wouldn’t believe if the footage wasn’t there to back it up – this documentary is a testament to not letting the little things stand in the way of living the dream (however briefly that may be).
