Well I must say that this documentary was quite interesting. It takes you way back to the early days of "NWA" and the friction between Eric "Easy E" Wright and the true talent of the group, Dr.Dre. It is then that Marion "Suge" Knight steps in to help but he gets taken in by the Industry and develops his own(thug)ways. And in between all of this there are people you haven't heard of talking about their whole Death Row experience but they do paint quite a picture for the audience. There are interviews with Dr.Dre, Suge Knight, and priceless interviews with Snoop Dogg that lets you know that this guy is truly a talent in more ways than one. Bottom line if you can't find a good movie to rent and you see this on the shelve, pick it up and see what all the fuss was about.
