I've never seen a movie quite like this. It is an apologia for pimping. Snoop set out to make a movie about becoming and being a pimp. Depicting the lifestyle and the mentality that goes into it. Basically this entails bending weak-willed women to your will and exploiting them for money. Snoop generally portraits pimping as a good and desirable thing.
For this reason I found it entertaining as a more conventional filmmaker would try to depict such a thing as nothing but vile or at the very least, morally ambiguous. I found it absurd at times but kept having to remind myself that this stuff actually exists and Snoop is just showing us what it's all about.
It could have been a far better movie with more money and a better writer and director. Needs a lot more polish but good nonetheless. But not great by any means.
