Street punk goes back in time
9 December 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A street smart Detroit rapper suffers a trauma which sends him back to the year 1822 in the deep south. He falls into the hands of slavers and is sold as a fieldhand, receiving a first hand education in life as an indentured worker. A funny yet grim look at early America.
