Straight-up rawness
24 July 2003 | by whoTheFuqRyouSee all my reviews

I was very entertained by this yaad-man's gangster flick. Spragga Benz is great in his first true role as a Jamaican drug dealer/gunman...Lots of familiar faces were seen in this from Wyclef to Lennox Lewis down to Tyson Beckford(Biker Boyz)... Haven't seen it on DVD but I will be sure to buy when it shows up
