"The battle rap world is an underground message of free speech," Kahn told the Hollywood Reporter of the film's central idea last year.

Bodied was inspired, in part, by the criticism he faced from some over Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" video.
At the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, Kahn's satirical flick (featuring a story co-penned by Alex Larsen) took home the People's Choice Midnight Madness award.
