Gangsta Culture In A Blender
8 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not really sure where to start with this. I know that Adult Swim tends to play towards the lowest common denominator, but this is ridiculous; never has the bar been set lower. Take some gangsta stylings, add in a rap battle that ends in a Dragon Ball Z power-up, make sure that the n-word gets dropped on a regular basis, and throw in "weed=good" and "all we want is bling and bitches" messages, and that pretty much sums up the movie. You see committee movies in Hollywood all the time; this was a movie produced by a gangsta-wannabes.

It's mildly homophobic (you have a group of ostensibly gay rappers that provide the counterpoint to the show's group of up-and-comers), and women are relegated to pure sex objects; with the exception of the leader of the 10%-ers, the only women in the show are literally nothing but sex objects; heck, one of the rewards for winning the contest is a lifetime of ho's, and one of the numbers shows Freaknik going around transforming women into big-busted bra and Daisy Duke-wearing ho's. The sole intelligent woman was portrayed as a hungry shrew that wanted nothing but control.

The portrayal of the men wasn't much better. Cops are evil, drugs and alcohol are good, and gang credos rule. All that matters for them is getting drunk, laid, and high. I know that young men see fame as a way to getting sex and drugs, but they usually learn something about whats important on the way up; in this show, it wasn't about how the music was important, but how it was a way to money and getting laid. There was nothing solid about any of the male characters; sort of fitting that that a ghost was the lead, I think...

I know that this was supposed to be "light-hearted" and in the vein of the House Party movies, but it just came off as offensive. I think if you wanted proof that the civil rights movement is dead, and not in a good way, this show would be it...
