Storyline

In Los Angeles, two rival gang leaders are also trying to be music producers. When DJ's equipment shorts out and Lonzo is cut out of the action by a record producer, the two join forces, which also requires a tentative peace between gangs. With backing from Gator, a smooth New Orleans drug king, DJ and Lonzo start dealing, organizing their gangs into pushers. Just as their finances are looking up, one of Gator's team pulls a double cross and two of DJ and Lonzo's gang bangers start a shooting war. Can the erstwhile music producers salvage anything of their bond or their plans? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A'ight!
19 April 2001 | by (Dumfries and Galloway UK) – See all my reviews

Well watched this last night and although it was ok i found myself nodding off a few times. If you are into films where every 3rd word is nigga' this and nigga' that, then you will love this. Ice cube's screen presence in this lasts as long as it does in the trailer.. Only a few mins. Overall this film was ok and helped me into becoming a wannabe G!
