This movie is one of the most underrated movies in Hip Hop. The directing was great although some of the acting needed work. The movie is still relevant even today concerning wanna be rappers aspirations to rise to the top of the game by leaving all else, whether family or friends, behind in pursuit of the new American dream. The idea of pretending to be someone ur not to make the money is what still drives not only the Hip Hop scene, but the entire music industry and this movie brings it home when Rich takes his ass home to his wife and son. All the scenarios in this movie are still plaguing our beloved Hip Hop culture today as they did in raps early stages. I'm a 40 yr old hip hop loving old fuk and not afraid to tell anyone just as i did in the 70's that hip hop is here to stay and like Rock-N-Roll, hip hop will have its downtime as well. If ur a real hip hop fan, the music and dancing will take a side step when u listen hard to the lyrics of 'I' as well as the executive producer where they get into it over the market history of hip hop as well as the history of Jews, Africans and the American Negro. The mature kitchen discussion of Rap music in the kitchen with the white MILF. The gay guys twist on the bashing of his kind verses the perpetuation of the over emphasized coolness of the B-Boy style. Lastly the realization of playing the game as it dawns over Maura Tierney, who played Rich's lust interest, that she's playing a game and only rebelling from her parents. There's some serious thought put into this movie and its kinda deep if ur not just looking for flashy DJing (I am one so don't hate), clothing and bling. I'm so glad this movie came out before the word 'Bling' hit the culture. This movie is a definite treasure for all those truly into hip hop for more than the beats and bullshit......Bling!
