Storyline

Maria Jose 'Majo' Tonorio is a tough LA street poet who spits from the heart. After meeting a talented DJ she cuts her first demo under the guidance of a small time hustler more interested in promoting Majo's sexuality than her lyrics. Soon a major label and its strong-arm executive come calling. Convinced that a record deal will deliver much needed money for the family, Majo is suddenly faced with some stark choices. Does she accept the deal and turn her back on the friends who got her to the precipice of success or does she let a golden opportunity slip away. Written by Anonymous

Powerful!
8 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

I saw this by mistake actually and I'm glad I did! Man what a powerhouse this movie is! Majo (Gina Rodriguez) struggles to make it in the hip hop scene and that means awesome tracks and fast raps.

But there's a lot more...we follow her family as well and while success comes, her personal life is a mess. But despite being lied to and manipulated she sticks to what she believes in and goes further then anyone believed.

What amazed me was the musical story which basically follows her development as a person, from a shy girl that writes slam poetry to a young woman that's not afraid to let her voice be heard.

Do not miss this because the casting, the music and the plot makes this a great enjoyment, it gave me goosebumps! Thumbs up!
