Gbenga Akinnagbe, Yaya Alafia (née DeCosta) and Jean Grae are amongst the cast of Neil Drummings movie “Big Word’ set in Brooklyn about three former band mates who are now in their late 30’s. During the 2008 presidential election, they reflect and struggle with regret, disappointment, and change.
‘Former frontman John, once known as Big Words, is now a working class guy who raps only to himself. James is a publicist living with his boyfriend, far removed from the days when he rhymed about getting girls. While DJ Malik still spins records with a longing for the glory days. Together again, the friends reckon with dreams deferred and dreams yet to come.’
