Pretty one sided to be representing a whole culture
10 July 2002 | by (Charlotte) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge Hip Hop fan, and was very happy to see this documentary was coming out. I felt that finally our culture would be represented to the masses. But after seeing the movie I was disappointed about how shallow the movie was. It might as well have been a documentary on Def Jam and Death Row... with a little bit of Biggie. I advise everyone to put this back on the shelf and go watch Rhyme And Reason. I'll give it a 5 for at least trying to give us what we were all looking for.
