Badassery looks at the rise of the female DJ, and how their presence is unapologetically disrupting the Toronto hip-hop scene. The film covers the journey of some amazing women pursuing their passions in the male-dominated hip-hop arena. In doing so, it examines the social, political and cultural factors that enabled and empowered their success such as the growing economization of social media, the rise of independent artists, beauty as capital and other topics.
