    For those that missed it, one of our favorite rising MCs in the indie scene Chance The Rapper dropped a weirdly awesome short film about depression called, Mr Happy. The film, directed by Colin Tilley, marks Chance’s acting debut and he actually does a pretty decent job at it.

    A constant complaint of black gay film here on Cypher Avenue has been that nearly all of the movies, shorts and web series are about looking for love, holding on to love or mourning the loss of a relationship. Rarely ever any variety in genre or storytelling.

    This heterosexual short film Mr. Happy also tackles the human desire for companionship…but its done in a very dark, twisted and unique way.

    The film follows the main character Victor (Chance The Rapper) who’s majorly depressed due to his feelings of loneliness. After several unsuccessful attempts at suicide, he finds an online service called Mr. Happy that will do the job for him (without notice) at a fee. Almost immediately after he hires them, he finds what could be the love he’s been waiting for, giving him buyer’s remorse for his recent purchase. Can he stop the deed from happening before the killer finds him?

    Now let’s stop right there.

    How many black LGBT films have you seen with this type of thriller/suspense premise built into the core?

    For our money, this is a very dope short film that proves cinematic creativity can be accomplished on very low budgets.

    Damn! I wasn't ready for that ending. Wow. This is the kind of stuff that I like. Love the fact that it shows black folk deal with depression also.

    It's was a interesting film I'll give it that. However, the ending was pretty predictable.

    Very predictable but good nonetheless.

    Chance did a great job in this short film. The subject matter, the presentation, and the delivery, were on point. This was well executed. I hope to see more of Chance in film, but I need another mixtape, and an album first.

    I liked this quite a bit, it was engrossing and was well acted.
    Sad but the light touches of comedy added to the overall product.
    I also liked the Happy Ending, expected and predictable but still entertaining.

    Very good and creative. I agree with the others, it was a bit predictable. I would've been more surprised if his co-worker also worked for Mr. Happy and was the one to do the deed.
