ROCK RUBBER 45s is a cinematic odyssey exploring the connectivity of global basketball, sneaker, and music lifestyle through the firsthand lens of authentic New York City culture orchestrator Bobbito Garcia. The film explores García’s youth dealing with mistreatment, educational quandaries, identity, and loss as well as his ascension to self-determination as an adult freelance creative. The ballplayer/author/DJ/filmmaker has carved an independent career that has inspired millions throughout the world, and has affected the growth and direction of the footwear, hip hop, and sports industries in the process.

It features interviews with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rosie Perez, Stevie Wonder, Questlove, Patti Labelle, Michael Rapaport, Chuck D, Chris Paul, Scottie Pippen, The Professor, Earl Manigault, Pee Wee Kirkland, Maxwell, Eddie Palmieri, Louie Vega, Raekwon, Legs, Clark Kent, Roc Raida, Talib Kweli, Serch, Spinna, Rich Medina, Spike Lee, Kobe, and Magic.
