Allow us to introduce you to the one, the only, Killa P, Patti Cake$, a.k.a Patricia Dombrowski. In between working dead-end jobs and tending bar in a seedy dive, the aspiring emcee from suburban New Jersey writes rhymes, spits battle raps in gas station parking lots, and freestyles at her own determined reflection in the bathroom mirror. In her quest for stardom, the young wannabe rapper gathers the Garden State’s least likely hip hop supergroup: a pharmacist turned hype man, a mysterious musician who doesn’t play any instruments, and Patti’s cranky, wheelchair-bound grandma. We promise you will not be able to get this character’s spunk, or her songs, out of your head.
