When Corde Christopher gets a visit from legendary pimp, he's delighted as he just happens to be broke. He gets sucked into a dangerous game of prostitution, money and murder and ends up having to choose between this world and living the meaningful life he has always aspired to. Written by
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.
