This is a film where you think the hero is a good person, but he usually does some stupid things that in a moral movie woulnd't be redeemable. But not here. Pras has a fair performance here as a rap star who wants to make it big, legitimately, but he has to worry about his long time record producer, drug pusher and friend (Ja Rule in a not too bad first role), his father who returned after a 12 year absence and his girlfriend (Tamala Jones) who is pregnant. A couple of good points on the black music industry (literaly and figuratively) and a couple of stand out performances are cluttered by a lame excuse for a music video plot. Oh well, I guess you could catch this type of thing here, or somewhere else. Jason Statham is exceptional though as a british drug dealer, but even he can't help much. C+
