Another lowlife "rapper" who cant act.
13 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

If I could have given this a score lower than a 1 I would have but unfortunately, thats not possible. The only reason I went to see this was because it was a first date movie and being the gentleman I am I let my date pick what to see. A lot of people who know me would say I'm just being biased since I absolutely despise hip-hop, rap, or whatever its called but this movie (and I use that term lightly) was utter crap. Horrible plot, horrible acting, and a horrible cast. I actually feel like I have lost a few I.Q. points from watching this disaster of a film. Whoever wrote, directed, and casted this film must really feel embarrassed right now, hopefully as embarrassed as I felt for them while I was watching it. And if anyone cares my date (who likes 50 cent) hated it as much as me.
