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>

For The Hard Core Fan!
25 January 2002 | by (Yonkers,New York) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie about a year and a half ago and this flick was just what it would be.Mack 10 & Fat Joe are gang rivals who just happen to have a lot in common & more! If you're a fan of "Ghetto Cinema",check it out,though the excessive profanity was a little much,but what do you expect?
