Dallas follows the story of the 7 year old artist who has a penchant for re-creating some of the most iconic rappers in the world in cartoon form.
Hip Hop is a genre that’s been tainted by accusations of containing sexist lyrics, violent themes and dangerous role models. Not exactly the kind of thing you want your child to be exposed to then. Fans of Hip Hop know that things aren’t quite as black and white as that though and when Lenox began drawing pictures of famous rappers in his colouring books, his rap-loving Dad was overjoyed.
After teaching his son how to use a professional tracing machine, Lenox began re-creating famous Hip Hop album covers. His work gained a lot of attention. Many of the rappers that he had drawn reached out to the 7 year old, desperate to get their hands on his charming artworks. It snowballed from there and this doc takes us inside the unique journey that Lenox and his dad have been on since he first started drawing. It also shows us the tough decisions that Lenox’s parents are faced with, as they consider the morals surrounding their son’s favourite hobby.
