This Friday, June 17th, Red Bull will release a feature-length documentary charting Om’mas Keith‘s ascent from Hollis, Queens to Hollywood as one of the preeminent producers of our time. Across The Board provides an intimate glimpse into the life of the SA-RA founder through his own burly voice and kush-kissed lens, taking us into his mother’s home, where the likes of Gary Bartz and Sun-Ra have spent precious time, respectively, into his Whitelines studio, where the likes of Thundercat and Erykah Badu have crafted modern masterpieces.
The documentary will gather testimony from the many legends that have filled Keith’s already storied career — having defined the sonic landscape of the 2010s and well beyond — including the aforementioned, as well as Miguel, John Legend, Anderson .Paak, Robert Glasper and a score of others. No telling if we’ll finally get that Frank Ocean update we’ve all been waiting for, but this could very well hold us over until then. Watch the riveting trailer for Red Bull’s Across The Board documentary on the Om’mas Keith down below and hold tight for the film’s release this Friday.
