Life & Lyrics Synopsis

Two London hip-hop crews go head to head in an MC 'battle'. But when the DJ from one crew falls for the singer from their rivals, it threatens to tear apart lifelong friendships. The distinctive world of UK hip-hop is a vibrant backdrop to this compelling story of love and loyalty.
