Storyline

In Los Angeles, two rival gang leaders are also trying to be music producers. When DJ's equipment shorts out and Lonzo is cut out of the action by a record producer, the two join forces, which also requires a tentative peace between gangs. With backing from Gator, a smooth New Orleans drug king, DJ and Lonzo start dealing, organizing their gangs into pushers. Just as their finances are looking up, one of Gator's team pulls a double cross and two of DJ and Lonzo's gang bangers start a shooting war. Can the erstwhile music producers salvage anything of their bond or their plans? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

HOT GANGSTA FILM....
24 February 2000 | by pdunn98See all my reviews

Got this movie on DVD, it's hot! Mack-10 and Fat Joe are spectacular in their roles, and with supporting roles from Ice Cube and Big Pun (RIP) just add to the excellence of this film. Many probably wouldn't think anything of this movie, but then tension between the different gangs and the ending of this film is just superb... I highly recomend this to hip hop fans.
