GO WHITE GIRL GO WHITE GIRL GO...!
27 August 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

A feel good drama about a NJ white girl who wants to be a rapper. Has more humor going for it than say Hustle & Flow but essentially the message of making it out of the hole you find yourself is still a potent one. A lot of fun, can't wait for PBN & J's debut CD.
