In the coming-of-age comedy and Sundance favorite Dope, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is obsessed with 1990s hip-hop culture: He sports a flat-top haircut, listens to Naughty by Nature on his Walkman and rides a Sunkist-colored BMX bike. He and his friends Diggy (Kiersey Clemons, who some will recognize from Transparent) and Jib (Tony Revolori, who made his name in The Grand Budapest Hotel) are nerds at the bottom of the high school food chain who find themselves unexpectedly embroiled in the world of drugs and guns they’ve spent their whole lives trying to avoid.

This new clip introduces Malcolm’s rough Los Angeles neighborhood, nicknamed The Bottoms, and his unattainable love interest, played by Zoë Kravitz.

Produced by Forest Whitaker, executive produced by Pharrell Williams and co-executive produced by Sean Combs, Dope hits theaters June 19.
