Storyline

Three notorious gangsters wage a bloody battle for supremacy in the City of Brotherly Love. Beans, the imprisoned kingpin and hometown drug lord, struggles to keep his renegade ABM Crime Syndicate on the map. He is driven and consumed by a festering hatred for his longtime rival. Dame, the Harlem-born hustler, is also the top dog in town. His Umbrella network is unmatched in cash-flow and manpower. With a long list of enemies seeking territory and revenge, the self-proclaimed "cakeaholic" is forced into a vicious war. Loco, the flashy Miami playboy, is about to be released from prison. His deep pockets and stellar reputation prove to be valuable tools in Loco's plot to take over the streets of Philly. But he must first overcome the ghosts from a turbulent past. Alliances are formed and shattered, and lifelong friendships are put to the test as the various crews deal and duel to the death. Somewhere, buried deep within the ranks of one of these gangs, a ruthless criminal mastermind is ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

the creativity is refreshing
17 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the movie, I did get a little confused with all the characters and voice-overs. But, thats what style is all about. Doing things different,new, your own way. These may be rappers,but they are very intelligent and wealthy.I can appreciate the busy story telling.What would the movie world be like without pioneers.Look at Citizen Kane, a movie that wasn't given its credit until twenty years later because of new techniques and ideas. Now its a classic movie studied by many.I wonder why wealthy hip-hip moguls are bashed when creative,but what about the low budget likes of Napolean Dynamite. The days of the 3-part traditional movie format is over.State property is making a move in the right direction,with multiple narration and flashbacks.
