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>

Chris Rock's funniest film
16 March 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

CB4 is clearly Chris Rock's funniest film. The film is a right on target of hip hop culture. The film has many scenes including one in a restaurant called Big Ass Biscut and and the funeral scene. Look for Eddie Murphy's brother Charlie in a funny role as Gusto.
