London was one of three artists profiled in the Billboard Documentary piece, “Saving Chicago: Inside Hip-Hops Movement to Make Chicago a Better Place” when his debut project "#OPIA", released in October 2016. In 2018, London released his first documentary, "Some Call It A Conspiracy: A Malcolm London Story" featuring Chance The Rapper.
