“WHEN THE BEAT DROPS is an in-depth look at a group of mostly African-American men putting everything on the line to honor and express their creativity, their life force, making the most of their time on the planet.  My heart goes out to everyone sharing their truth in this fascinating documentary from first-time director Jamal Sims.”
