No hip-hop all Harp (heart) string MUSIC
22 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an EMO urban hip-hop film. They did everything in this film they did in 8MILE but just multiplied it 7-fold. Where in 8-mile we felt sorry for the white kid trying to make it out of the hood by rapping now we have a whole crew of "I gotta do this and get that prise-money to pay for my mothers new kidney."

First the story starts off going for the running from the cops, made great by the American urban films. Then it introduces all the characters in this crew and then their sad ass If I don't win this rap-battle then.....you've seen this story. But this time the bad guys have their own problems too. It never gets you too like anyone, I didn't hate them I just wish they'e do some elective surgery with Dr. MOSSBERG and put themselves out of their misery.

hey next time can we get a chance to like them first B4 you start pulling on the heart-strings of their poor miserable hard-Scrabble existence. Hell i even felt sorry for the rival evil rap crew.

In one point the HERO gets with a rich girl high above his station in life. his crew tells him to break up with her and walks around all mopey. they don't try and get jobs, or rob her and her friends or hold a rent party at her mansion. They just mope around.
