Get rich or die trying is a good look at the inner city youth and the decisions they faced with. The raw gritty tale of a kid off the streets born into the drug trade is a good piece of cinema. The director does a good job showing this sector of our society. Curtis Jackson appears to be following the path of other rapper turned actor. This being Jackson first movie he does an exceptional job and expect even greater things from him in the future is chooses to continue movie role. The screen play has it's week points. Which I found unusually for the caliber of the writer. Overall it is worth the money. Don't wait for this to come to cable, see it now.
