Rapper Maino is set to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at his rise in hip-hop with the upcoming documentary Unstoppable set to be released tomorrow (June 9).

Maino explained the film’s focus on the adversity he has faced and his struggles to overcome all obstacles.

“A lot of industry people didn’t believe in me when I first started pounding the streets,” he said via a statement. “Many said I wouldn’t make it off of mixtapes, now look…my album is dropping June 30th. Haters inspired me to write my last two hit records. Unstoppable is the story of my life and struggles to get to the position I’m in now. I had a rough life growing up and nothing ever happened the way it was supposed to happen to me, so I’m accustomed to being turned down.” (Statement)

Focusing on his humble beginnings up until his “Hi Hater” fame, the doc will reportedly be a no-holds barred look into the New York rapper’s back story.
