A Must See For All Of Today's Youth

I thought this movie was great and extremely well produced especially considering it was written, directed and starred in my a kid who isn't old enough to yet be out of college. One needs to also take in consideration of how good this film is when it was produced with a very low budget in Hollywood terms. I also thought it had a great urban sound track. We should all go and support the young up and coming artists of today. This film should be shown annually to all high school students across America in hopes to keep them from this terrible fate.I think they would better identify with this culturally than they do to the current DARE programs that were/are in place.
