A movie that celebrates family and friendship and ultimately courage. Cyrus DeBarge (Tyler James Williams) and his best friend Kris McDuffy (Trevor Jackson) reunite with their childhood friend who has become a singing sensation – Roxanne “Roxie” Andrews (Coco Jones). Roxie’s music label is sponsoring a songwriting contest at a teen club and as Cyrus crafts a heartfelt rhyme about Roxie it is accidentally mistaken to be his best friends. To his dismay, his friend takes the credit and also Roxie’s heart. Cyrus must figure out how to overcome his self-doubt, show his father the preacher (Courtney B. Vance) that hip-hop can convey positive messages and realize his dreams in the process. There is also a bonus feature where you can see Cyrus rap a battle-of-the-rhymes with his nemesis!
