The music of Wu-Tang Clan, Mac Dre, Charles Bradley, and Iamsu! fills the soundtrack for Kicks, an urban coming-of-age tale about a 15-year-old boy who tries to recover his hard-earned pair of vintage Air Jordans after they are stolen.
Kicks, which marks the feature film debut by Justin Tipping and stars Jahking Guillory, Christopher Meyer and Notorious B.I.G.’s son, Christopher Jordan Wallace, received strong reviews following its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring. The Focus World film opens Sept. 9, the same day the digital and physical version of the score come out on Backlot Music.
Set in the San Francisco Bay Area, the film features music from local artists, including Roach Gigz, Dave Steezy, and NanosauR, as well as the late Dre and Iamsu!. The movie’s composer, Brian Reitzell, is also from the area.
