ICE-T ... you've come a long way, man!
24 May 2005 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

"I got a P.H.D. - Pimpin' Ho's Degree!"

If pimps ever ran for public office, they could take over the government. That's how persuasive these guys are as they take over the lives of young women and make them glad to be working on the street as prostitutes.

Comic relief galore as the film follows it's assembly of pimps to the PIMP OF THE YEAR awards show - I kid you not! Note: "Hustle and Flow" is a great dramatic version of a pimp's life that practically mirrors real-life ascent of rappers like Ice-T - check it out. Opens the summer of 2005
