Homeless and on the run from a military court martial, a damaged ex-special forces soldier navigating London's criminal underworld seizes an opportunity to assume another man's identity -- transforming into an avenging angel in the process.
Trying to bootstrap his way out of Brooklyn's mean streets is Diamond, a rap musician. With his long-time pal Gage acting as his manager, he's trying to lay down a demo tape with cut-rate studio time. To pay the bills, he and Gage run drugs for "Mr. B." Inside a week, Diamond's beloved mother dies suddenly, his father appears after an absence of 12 years and wants a relationship, and his girlfriend Kia tells him she's pregnant, asking him if he's ready to be a father. Gage steals $100,000 in a multiple-felony robbery so that Diamond can record a full album, not knowing it's Mr. B's money he's taken. B wants his money, Diamond wants his music, Kia wants an answer.Written by

I wonder you can't hear worth a shot. You're too fucking wasted.
I'll just have one when you go, you know?
I'm not fucking with you no more. You're fired.
You firing me?
That's what I said. Now get the fuck out of here.

Turn It Up comes off like a fake Belly, which is a much better film. The gun battles are generic and the cinematography is bland. But Ja Rule as Gage, makes this movie with his peformance. He comes off the flavor that Tupac did in Juice. I don't reccomnded this movie at all.
