Storyline

Nemesis is the hottest rapper in rap's hottest city; Miami, the 305. But he has a little secret...he's not really a rapper. As a boy the artistic Nate Harris drew cartoons and dreamed of changing the world. A record label discovers Nate's talent, and offers to make him a star, as a rapper. They create Nemesis, a Hip Hop gangster designed to sell records and spit hate. Fame quickly follows, but at a price. The fans demand true street cred, and to get it, Nate's label turns a fellow rapper and former childhood friend against Nate, spawning a rap feud. The feud quickly escalates into a war, and Nate is trapped in the reality of the fiction he has created. Nate is faced with a choice: Either become a superstar by giving Hip-Hop what it wants; a war between two rap rivals, or, give it what it needs; destroy his real rival, the fictional character and become a true hero; he has the ability to save hip hop...but can he save himself?

No "know thy Enemy"
12 September 2009 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Wow -- what to say: a laughably bad film! Poor performances (mainly from the lead character -- most others are okay), weak script, mediocre music, the usual clichés for the genre, corny dialog, dull and dragging storyline, amateurish cinematography, etc. My son and I had a good time laughing our way through this one; it's funny for all the wrong reason. My theory about such projects is this: an audience is willing to overlook a low-budget effort (such as this one), as long as the film's script and the acting is tight (unlike this one). You'll inevitably question how the lead actor was chosen for the part -- did somebody owe him money, big time!!! I'll conclude by saying something positive: the film is well-intentioned -- no doubt all those involved meant well, despite how overwhelmingly inept they were in every possible way. I'd skip this one if I were you.
