Exclusive: Joseph Kahn, Jackie Long & Calum Worthy Talk BODIED

In a society where most people are so got damn sensitive, Bodied explores the delicate sensibilities of “offense culture”, then tramples them, stands them in a corner, kicks them in the crotch, takes them to the top rope and does a back flip suplex on their throat.

Look, we’re not going to burden you with an overly verbose explanation of the movie. If you like battle rap, love to laugh and aren’t easily offended, then this is THAT movie. And if you’re not that person, then you probably shouldn’t be reading 2LOUD Magazine any damn way #facts.


BODIED is the satirical story of Adam Merkin, a progressive grad student who becomes an accidental battle rapper whose success breeds outrage.  The film stars Calum Worthy (Austin & Ally, The Thinning, and American Vandal), Jackie Long (Idlewild, ATL), Shoniqua Shondai (Sing It!, The Fosters), Walter Perez (The Avengers, Fame), Rory Uphold (Hella).  Also featured are well known battle rappers Dizaster, Dumbfoundead, Hollow Da Don and media personality Charlamagne Tha God.
