Trying to bootstrap his way out of Brooklyn's mean streets is Diamond, a rap musician. With his long-time pal Gage acting as his manager, he's trying to lay down a demo tape with cut-rate studio time. To pay the bills, he and Gage run drugs for "Mr. B." Inside a week, Diamond's beloved mother dies suddenly, his father appears after an absence of 12 years and wants a relationship, and his girlfriend Kia tells him she's pregnant, asking him if he's ready to be a father. Gage steals $100,000 in a multiple-felony robbery so that Diamond can record a full album, not knowing it's Mr. B's money he's taken. B wants his money, Diamond wants his music, Tia wants an answer.

You wanna be real, OK. You can run around with Gage. The minute he fucking calls you, you run with him like his bitch but you can't take care of your child? What kind of man are you, Diamond?

I saw this on Black Starz late at night. This is really bad, it's a fake wanna-be Belly with some terrible acting(especially Ja-Rule and Pras), the script was just flat-out lame, the shootout scenes were unrealistic like said earlier here and once again Ja-Rule was in it which made the movie worse than it already was and the live performances weren't any good neither... The only good thing about this movie was the scoring by Frank Fitzpatrick, other than that..
a str8 up embarrassment
1/10 - GAABAGE..
