88rising, Prime Video and Amazon Music Present ‘STOOP KID’ by Guap, The Multi-hyphenate Bay Area Hip-Hop Talent

Reaching out and excited to share that Amazon Music and Prime Video have partnered with the best of Asian talent, 88rising is continuing to advance Asian culture and highlight the unique intersections between Asian and Black American diasporas. To do so, 88rising collaborated with Grammy-nominated Bay area hip-hop artist GUAP to create a thought-provoking personal 30-minute short film, ‘STOOP KID.’

Premiering on Amazon Music and Prime Video today, July 21, the artist formerly known as Guapdad 4000 will share his coming of age story as a young Black and Filipino man growing up in the Bay where the need for survival taught him the art of finessing which led him to becoming the multi-hyphenate he is today: an artist, an entrepreneur and now filmmaker. 

In direct dialogue with his new self-titled statement EP, GUAP, which includes the COLORSXSTUDIO x NBA 2K hit ‘Black Iverson’, and features from Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y on tracks like ‘Pose‘, the companion to docu-film premiered on July 14th. An illustrious EP, GUAP highlights him where he is now: a thriving, confident and sure man, proud of his past, despite its harsh challenges, as viewers will see presented in the film. 

From the Bay himself as well, 88rising CEO and founder Sean Miyashiro understood that hip hop has always celebrated Asian culture, and it’s the genuine understanding that led to partnership with Oakland-bred personality.
