January 9, 2023
The music drama On the Come Up, the directorial debut of Sanaa Lathan (“Succession”), will be released on digital Jan. 10 and on DVD Feb. 14 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
The film originally debuted on Paramount+.
Based on the New York Times No. 1 best-selling novel by Angie Thomas (The Hate U Give), On the Come Up stars newcomer Jamila C. Gray (American Girl) as a gifted 16-year-old rapper, who attempts to take the battle rap scene by storm in order to lift up her family and do right by the legacy of her father — a local hip hop legend whose career was cut short by gang violence. When her first hit song goes viral for all the wrong reasons, she finds herself torn between the authenticity that got her this far and the false persona that the industry wants to impose upon her.
