Lucky Post editor Sai Selvarajan spent countless summers playing basketball with his friends, rap blaring, sidewalks sizzling. He moved to the US from Nigeria when he was nine, and saw America as an open book. It was a place where the language of hip-hop and magic of basketball formed his literature of influence. This personal project, directed and edited by Sai, is an homage to suburban teen dreams and the intensity of the game. As Sai recounts, “when the beat drops and the ball goes up, my heart stops.” Special thanks to Scottie Richardson for his sound "assist" and his mad skillz on the one's and two's!
