This is not what hip hop is all about
22 July 2006 | by (Enschede, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Hip Hop story - Tha Movie is by far the worst movie i've ever seen. It starts with a bunch of rappers in a car who are rapping about guns, prostitutes and money. It seems that the movie creators think this is the very essence of hip-hop. It also shows a performance of about 20 rappers on stage performing songs of other rap stars. The hip-hop artist KRS-One talks about the ones who have passed away in the hip-hop scene, and a part of the movie is about this very issue. There are some interviews with the rappers Eazy-E, Cash Money Crew, DMX, Xzibit, 2pac, and some other less famous rappers. The movie contains a lot of girls with little clothes on, as well as drug and alcohol usage, cars and gold teeth. I've seen a lot of rappers of whom i never heard anything before, and I would like to keep it that way. There is a part of the movie which is about the East-Coast - West-Coast rivalry, and the end of the movie isn't anything special as well. It was hard for me to keep watching, with all these fake bubble gum rappers. I definitely gave it a 1, because the movie doesn't tell the true essence of hip-hop, and how it all started. It really really sucked big time, and I would only recommend it to Ja Rule and 50 cent fans.
