Description
Patricia Dombrowski (aka “Killa P”, aka "Patti Cake$") drafts rhymes behind the bar at a dingy New Jersey dive bar, trying to pay off her coarse but beloved Nana’s medical bills and support her hard-drinking mom, whose own musical aspirations faded long ago. Patti and her rap partner and best friend Jheri share dreams of fame, fortune, and escaping Dirty Jersey for good, but they haven’t found a producer with the "fire beats" they need. Unbroken by the taunts of local goons, Patti unexpectedly gravitates to a reclusive death-metal musician named Basterd Antichrist, a newcomer who just might be able to help Patti achieve hip-hop superstardom.
