Storyline

A "rockumentary", covering the rise to fame of MC Gusto, Stab Master Arson, and Dead Mike: members of the rap group "CB4". We soon learn that these three are not what they seem and don't apear to know as much about rap music as they claim... but a lack of musical ability in an artist never hurts sales, does it? You've just got to play the part of a rap star... Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Funniest FN movie
4 August 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

whether you hate rap music or you don't this is one of the funniest movies about rap music. CB4 pokes fun at west coast gangsta rap that was popular in the early 90's- this had to be one of Chris Rock's funniest roles ever!!! The songs are really funny and all the characters in this movie make it what it is- from Chris Elliot to Phil Hartman.
