‘I’m Rick James, Bitch!’
After making waves at Sundance earlier this year, the official trailer for the upcoming documentary, Bitchin’: The Sound and Fury of Rick James, has arrived.

At just north of a minute-and-half-long, the preview is as high-octane as you might think, offering plot points in a film that promises to offer a glimpse at the wild life of a funk icon. Directed by Sacha Jenkins, Bitchin’ will cover the impossible highs and cavernous lows of James’ career as a hitmaker who bridged the worlds of R&B  and pop at a particularly transformative point in music.

The trailer features interviews with bandmates, tons of archival concert footage, as well as testimony from Ice Cube, Bootsy Collins, and Big Daddy Kane. It closes with life imitating art at the 2004 BET Awards, where James walked off the stage after declaring “Nevermind who you thought I was, I’m Rick James, bitch.”
