    How can you make a documentary about a label when the only person interviewed is the guy no one trusts. Get Snoop, Dre, DPG and the dozens of other players in on it and see how different the picture gets painted. P.S!! How is Fuqua doing this doco but not the Pac movie...what a fool.

    This will be great. He built up one of the most succesfull indy-labels and then fucked it up. He was a dictator, a asshole and then broke. America needs guy like Suge.

    Fugua's directing skills have really gone to shit. It's like he's slumping now. Unable to helm big movies, so he gravitates towards the bullshit one's.
