When Marcus gets his Mercedes Benz S500, he starts playing his Window Shopper song. He wasn't a rapper back then. This is not an actual goof, as the tape Marcus was listening to was his demo tape, and he was in the car to drive to a meeting with a producer that was going to listen to his demo. See more »

I have nothing personal against 50 Cent, don't buy his records, kind of
view him as a flash in the pan. But after being saturated with his
face for the past 3 years I figured, why not see what
all the hype is about...yeah his "music" is bubble-gum wannabe gangster
rap that couldn't hold a candle to the originators of the genre...(i.e.
N.W.A.,Schooly-D,etc.) The music will be forgotten in 5 years time...so
maybe the movie will give him some validity, let's see if he can act.
BAD MOVE, this guy makes DMX look like Sidney Poitier. The whole movie
is the classic template, just plug in a one gear, multi-millionaire
so-called rap artist. It just wasn't entertaining, I wasn't expecting
the Godafther, but jeez...what a waste. So many other movies, steeped
in hood reality have delivered far more...Menace 2 Society and Boyz N'
The Hood all the way back to Cooley High. Hopefully the relatively
dismal box office receipts will keep this guy out of the movies so he
can concentrate on selling dull, bland pop music to the mouth breathing
masses who hail him as the king of the streets.
