Six people were actually held prisoner in the scene where Ace and a friend were bundled into the apartment by Calvin's accomplices who demanded the combination. All six were shot in the head when the extortion attempt failed and three died, including Faison's aunt. The real life Calvin, Kevin Clark was not murdered in a revenge killing by Rico, as is depicted in the film. Kevin Clark and his accomplices, Ronald Timmons and Henry Bolden were all arrested soon after the incident and are serving 112 years - to life sentences. See more »

I am very happy that the life story of Alpo, Rich Porter and AZ has come out, I saw the movie and I was mezmerized. Mekhi Phifer(Rich Porter) and David Sherwin Harris(AZ)(Above The Rim, Remember The Titans) do great as the legendary drug kingpins AZ and the now deceased Rich Porter. It really tells how crack cocaine blew up the way it did in the 80's and how "REAL" the crack game really is- How the up can make you feel on top of the world and how fast one can hit rock bottom in the game. The surprise came from Cam'ron as the now incarcerated druglord Alpo. This was a great movie and I also recommend the street documentary "Game Over" hosted by AZ which is also based on the lives of Alpo, Rich Porter and AZ.
A street classic 10/10
