The Realness by Idris Goodwin
Part of Arizona Theatre Company's digital season
There’s nothing more hip-hop than falling in love.

He falls hard for Prima, an emcee who entrances him with her music and her authenticity. When he lies and schemes to stay in her life, is it in the name of true love or just another part of his obsession with the hip-hop lifestyle?
