I Loved It!
16 January 1999 | by Mattchoo-2See all my reviews

This movie, although kind of crude and rough around the edges represented a great film made by a great man. I mean, give the guy some credit. He is the CEO of No Limit Records and he has a lot of the big-name rappers in the biz' in his corner. His movie may not be Oscar material, but I have noticed that people that criticize other people's work tend to not know how to do it any better. So, get a life those of you who are not Master P supporters. (All this was actually written by a WHITE guy!)
