Kid Cut Up’s Mix Featured in ‘Dope’ Trailer

A mini-mix by DJcity’s Kid Cut Up and Los Angeles’ Stubbs has been featured in a teaser trailer for Dope, a new movie with A$AP Rocky and Tyga.
The film is about a modern group of early ’90s hip-hop fans who live in a dangerous neighborhood in Inglewood, California. It was produced by Forest Whitaker and executive produced by Diddy and Pharrell Williams.
It should be noted that mixes are rarely used in trailers because licensing music can be expensive. As a result, many directors find it impractical to spend the amount of money required for such a short piece. However, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa apparently thought that including a mix was important.
Dope is scheduled to be released in North American theaters on June 19, 2015.
