    I listened to the album and I don't here the amazing piece of work that many comments on here are reporting. I here typical Ross. Kingpin, boss, drug dealer, killer, big house, fancy car, redbone broad, red bottom shoes, etc. There is nothing that lyrically distinguishes this album from any other Ross album so if you consider this a classic you may as well consider EVERY Ross album a classic.

    best album of the year already bitch

    Rozay got a banger on this one. Every Target I went to was sold out. I had to go to Walmart and get the clean version. It's still going ham though.

    • Johnny

      Clean versions are an insult to music/art. I accidentally had a clean version of Clipse "Hell Hath No Fury" because the case didn't indicate anything about being edited. I just threw it away so no one else will be able to hear that.

    This album is probably Rozay's best body of work to day I give it a 9 out of 10 simply because of Tracks like Rich Is Gangsta Blessing in Disguiuse Black and White Thug Cry Walking on Air Paradise Lost Sanctified Mafia Music 3 In Vein What a Shame Drug Dealer's The remaining tracks fall relatively flat but manage to fill the body of work as a whole, but this has album of the year potential.

  • Anonymous

    I want to give the album an 8.5 or a 9 but I dont want to give a knee jerk rating untill I give it one more burn in my ride so I can hear the lows. My favorite tracks off a couple listens: What a Shame Blessing in disguise Thug Cry Paradise Lost Sanctified ? The song I liked the least was Walkin on Air, the skits were average and I dont like the cover art on the regular version other than that Ross spits his normal luxury rhymes and the production is incredible.

    Not too long ago XXL said that Ross knows how to make an entertaining album. Tracklists, comparisons and lyrical breakdowns mean nothing when referring to this dude. He takes people's hate and goes gold. Name another rapper this despised who can do that? If he gets to say 8 albums, I think he deserves a little more respect for providing fake entertainment along the lines of WWE.

Only Southern boys making noise is Juicy J, Future, Quan, Young Thug, Migos and a few more. Only charting singles by a Southern artist other than Pitbull was 2-Chainz and that song was off the F&F soundtrack and made it to #16 and after that UOENO with Rocko, Ross, and Future. Maybe it's the West and the Midwest turn.

    Kill Wogs: -This my first thread as a HHDX member and I hope you find it as entertaining as I did when it happened. -I live in a rural community that has other small townships surrounding it. Smack dab in the middle of these communities is our county park. The county park has a swimming pool in it that most us here get a season pass to. It's a clean place and a nice set-up for the kids and adults alike. The reason you ask? No ni66ers Very few live out my way and those meat bags can't afford the fee to get in anyway. Imagine a human safe-haven if you will but, nothing remains perfect forever. -Occasionally but not very often, we get the piece of shit bus with chipped paint and some faded church name on the side parked in the parking lot. This only means one thing. Ni66erville has paid us a visit. This usually consists of a few white monkey wranglers that are called "big brothers/sisters, mentors, etc...". What they actually look like are tired, broken white hopefuls who at one time believed these monsters were "just like us". Then there's the niglets. A tidal wave of screaming, ooking, climbing, running, jumping and fighting three foot turds in every direction. After, a few hours, the niglets are rounded up and taken away. Chairs overturned, lifeguards exhausted and the pool, an oil slick. -One summer day, I took the kids to the pool and packed a few fruit snacks. (we are not supposed to but, they usually overlook small stuff as long as it's not a picnic). We get there and my kids found the usual friends and I settled into the book I was reading. About an hour and a half into the day, I hear the tired diesel engine pull into the lot. I look up and sure enough, a purple bus with the word "baptist" plastered on the side. I get up and tell my girls "time to go". I get the normal "awww" but,they get out and we go. On our way out, the hoard of niglets running amok made their way to entrance. A few scavengers noticed my oldest daughter holding a few fruit roll-ups. They stopped and ni99ertude kicked in. -"Can I have one?" -"Gimme one too." -You know the rest. Before i got to her side, my daughter said something to them I couldn't hear and they slunk away. Waiting till I got in the car, I drove away and asked. -"What did you say to them?" -"Who?" -"Those kids that wanted the fruit snacks." -"Oh, I told them that they were dirty and black and need to go away." -I couldn't be prouder then. -Fast forward a few years, said daughter is in jr high. Black History month came up in the car and I asked her what does she think of blacks, and she said.. -"Well, I gotta go to school with them." -Hopefully this carries on... -None of this is a stab at any Nordics religious beliefs. This is just my observation.

    "You wanna do me, then you go and tell the people Knock me down, temp drops as the sun rise" These lines, like most lines in the song, probably refers to the Zimmerman-Trayvon incident. Zimmerman slayed Trayvon Martin and then told the people it was in self defense. Perhaps Ross is insinuating that Zimmerman wanted to kill Martin, but acted as if that wasnt his intent. The people refers simultaneously to the jurors and the state of Florida, as criminal prosecutions are brought by the state, known as The People. The second part of the line again refers to Zimmerman, as he knocked Trayvon down first. Many Trayvon defenders believe that Zimmerman was the first aggressor. Ross uses a metaphor to compare Trayvon to the sun perhaps he is implying that Trayvons soul rose as he died. Use of the homophone sun anticipates the of the use of the word son in the next line, making Trayvon a symbol for all young black men, including Rosss son. The case hit home for many black families, as they believed it couldve been their son who couldve been killed, even President Obama once said If I had a son, hed look like Trayvon. Very clever wordplay in these two lines by Ross.

    But, here is the catch. On the song Black & White, Ross may have picked his words poorly. TheGrio.com is saying that he rapped the following on the song. Too close to a ni**a as a mother**king bomb Trayvon Martin, Im never missing my target B*tch ni**as hating, tell me its what Im parking Wingstop owner, lend me pepper aroma Young, black ni**a, barely got a diploma They also say the following: The line in question appears on the track Black & White with Ross comparing his success in the music industry to the death of Martin, and the acquittal of George Zimmerman. This is the latest incident where cultural sensitivity and hip-hop music have collided. TODAY is the anniversary of Trayvons murder by George Zimmerman. The following represents how I felt when I heard this rap. DAMNtime for some meaningless online boycotts and protest write ups.

      "It's so important that today, on the two-year anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin, we never forget that tragedy," Ross says in a quote emailed exclusively to VIBE. "I'm never going to let the world forget that name. In my song 'Black and White' off Mastermind I say, 'Trayvon Martin, I'm never missing my target'. There I'm reminding people that if you're a black person or a person of any color for that matter in this country, you have to be accurate, whatever moves you make, stay accurate. Even when you're walking down the street, playing music from your car, you have to stay on point." He continues: "Black men are being killed and their killers [are] beating the trial. It hasn't been this much violence against black men since the '60s. I am Trayvon Martin, we're all Trayvon Martin. He was from South Florida. That could have been me or one of my homies. So, stay alert and never miss your target. Whatever that target may be. Getting out the hood, providing from your family. Stay sharp. Stay alive. Trayvon, Rest in Peace."

  • Mastermind Review

    While on a hiatus from his long stint on Saturday Night Live, comedian Chris Rock took time to write and star in this film spoofing the world of gangster rap and hip hop. Directed by Tamra Davis ("Billy Madison"; "Half Baked"), "CB4" stars Chris Rock as Albert Brown, a young African-American guy living in Locash, California who dreams of making it big as a major rap star. With his friends, Euripides (Allen Payne of "Jason's Lyric") and Stabmaster Arson (Deezer D), Albert sets his sights on landing a contract with mega produced Trustus Jones. However, trouble comes along when Gusto (played by Eddie Murphy's brother, Charlie Murphy), the owner of the most popular club is arrested in a drug transaction that Albert witnessed (Gusto believes he was an informer). With Gusto out for revenge on Albert, Albert decides to take advantage of Gusto's name and personality and create the biggest, baddest rap group of all time-- CB4 (short for Cell Block 4). Throughout the film, the band faces challenges to their freedom of speech, problems in their love lives, band disunity, and a reconnection with their African roots. With a variety of jokes primarily targeted for urban minorities, CB4 will have you rolling on the floor laughing. Also starring in the film is the late Phil Hartman who plays a California conservative politician bent on destroying CB4. Khandi Alexander (television's "Talk Radio," which also had Hartman as a cast member) is hysterical as the hip hop groupie Sissy who is a "businesswoman" due to her get rich scheme of capturing rap stars in embarrassing Polaroid shots and blackmailing them. Chris Rock has sure come a long way from his days on Saturday Night Live. "CB4" was his first starring role, and after watching this film you'll see why he is one of the funniest comics alive today. "CB4" is to rap music as "This is Spinal Tap" was to rock. It's funny to the last minute.

  • Anonymous

    Made in the shadow of "Wayne's World," "CB4" is another "Saturday Night Live"-related music parody, this time skewering rap instead of heavy metal. Desperately uneven, it works best as a string of sketches about the title band, three guys who were born Albert (Chris Rock), Otis (Deezer D) and Euripides (Allen Payne) until they realized it might be more profitable to rename themselves MC Gusto, Stab Master Arson and Dead Mike. The names are funny, and so is the act: taking their group's name from the cellblock inhabited by an enemy, the members of CB4 appear in concert wearing denim prison fatigues while the set behind them features uniformed patrol guards and searchlights. Outfitted with gold chains, gold teeth and fake long hair, the group members belt out lyrics that are pure hostility and glare angrily at their fans. The film makers are savvy enough to enlist real rappers (Daddy-O, Hi-C and Kool Moe Dee) to blast out the vocals and give CB4's records a salable sound. Their popularity eventually makes them the target of a sanctimonious white politician (Phil Hartman, like Mr. Rock a "Saturday Night Live" cast member), who is made even angrier by the fact that his little son is a closet CB4 fan. "Any person who'd defile America's pastime by wearing a baseball cap backwards -- well, that's an evil that speaks for itself!" this politician declares. As directed by Tamra Davis ("Guncrazy") and written by Mr. Rock, Nelson George and Robert LoCash, "CB4" promises sharper satire than it actually delivers. Pandering a shade too avidly to the real rap audience, the film sometimes tries to use the same sexist, mean-spirited ethos it makes fun of. In this vein, Khandi Alexander struts enthusiastically through the film as a predatory, gold-digging sexual athlete. She snares a couple of band members and also tempts the film's glowering villain, Gusto (played by Charlie Murphy, Eddie's brother). "CB4" is also inconsistent, starting out with a "Spinal Tap" format, which it then forgets. Beginning as "A Rapumentary by A. White," with Chris Elliott playing the star-struck white interviewer, the film incorporates a fast string of cameos from Halle Berry, Ice Cube, Ice-T, Flavor Flav and others. (If you don't know Ice-T from Ice Cube or can't spot the Spike Lee parody, count on missing a lot.) Then the documentary trails off, and the three principals are seen plotting their show-business rise. There are also sentimental scenes between Albert and his father (Arthur Evans), who means to give his son sound advice but has terrible taste in music. When CB4 appears on a call-in radio show and Mr. Payne's character is asked about his favorite foods, he solemnly asks whether the listener knows a black man invented ice cream.

  • Mastermind Review

    "CB4" (citywide), a musical comedy about three gangsta rappahs from Locash, Calif., is part satire, part celebration. That's what causes most of its problems. The movie has bounce and bite, but it skitters around too much. Its needle is hip-hopping around between too many grooves. Co-writer/co-producer/star Chris Rock of "Saturday Night Live" plays the lead role of Albert Brown: a shy, almost fragile-looking middle-class Locash youth who turns himself into the oily-wigged, crotch-grabbing, jailhouse jive rapper, MC Gusto. And though Rock's satiric aim is occasionally deadly, on other occasions his show seems to be turning into a showcase for a lot of major rap songs and records (which isn't bad at all), and a more conventional '80s-style funny-money fairy tale about success (which isn't good). Rock loves rap. That's the first thing that's obvious about this movie--particularly in a droll little montage early on, where Ice-T, Ice Cube, Flavor Flav, Eazy E, Halle Berry and the Orlando Magic's Shaquille O'Neal appear in quick succession to offer testimonials to the gritty-grabby greatness of Cell Block Four: CB4 for short. These dubious eulogies, part of a puff-piece CB4 documentary being shot by the obsequious and idolatrous filmmaker A. White (Chris Elliot, son of Bob and Ray's Bob), suggest we're in for something in the vein of "This Is Spinal Tap" or "The Rutles"--a "mockumentary," sending up both rap's excesses and media's hype. But Rock and his co-scenarist Nelson George--the essayist and occasional screenwriter-producer--drop this structure soon: a shame. They move the movie into flashback, and then flash-forward, tame it a little--even while they're stripping the masks off their central trio: Albert/Gusto, Euripides Smalls alias Dead Mike (Allen Payne) and Otis O. Otis alias Stab Master Arson (Deezer D). "CB4" has a terrific comic point: that the "street" overtones of rap can get co-opted by middle-class kids, who have no clear idea of what the street and the underclass really are. The mock-macho gang is a crock; the real street violence comes back to haunt them. Despite their bottle-tipping, dirty-mouthed devil-may-care in the opening scenes, these guys are gag gangsters. Albert has copped both his moniker and his maniacal act from the real Gusto: a murderous, misogynist, coke-sniffing, gun-waving dude played by Charlie Murphy--who's a ringer for his younger brother, Eddie. Murphy's Gusto will eventually break out of jail and try to kill them but Albert, his copycat, is about as dangerous as Kool-Aid. And the rest of CB4 are shams, too, conscious or not. When Dead Mike, the Afrocentric ideologue/idealist of the trio, later records a consciousness-raising solo song, the lyrics sound like "I'm black; I'm black; I'm blackety-blackety-black." And Otis a.k.a. Stab Master is a pudgy rich kid who wants amour with a real-life centerfold. They're all from comfortable homes and, at one point, Albert's Pops (Art Evans) reviles his son for pretending to be "street" when he wasn't born poor--like Pops was. "CB4" is directed by Tamra Davis--and she gives the movie the sizzle and style she put into her rock videos and her recent flashy film-noir update "Guncrazy." Mostly, Davis tries to showcase the cast and the songs: the right ploy, since the cast and songs are the best things about "CB4." Most of the actors give funny, full-bodied performances; the fullest bodied and funniest may be Khandi Alexander's turn as Sissy, a voracious groupie with alligator eyes. The score--by composer John Barnes and music supervisor Bill Stephney--is full of raucous rap parodies, rollicking rap standards (by Ice Cube, Ice-T, LL Cool J, Public Enemy and others), all mixed up so that no one who watches the movie will be able to say that rap is nothing more than rhymes and brags with a jackhammer beat. One of the more adventurous of the recent African-American comedies, it still gets bogged down in those movie-movie formulas, those phony recipes for success.

  • Mastermind Review

    CB4 can be compared as the SPINAL TAP of gangster rap in the mid- or early 90's. Almost the same documentary type of format, CB4 shows the roots and development of a legendary rap group named after a criminal who was recently jailed and put into cell block 4. Throughout the movie, you'll here ridiculous songs like Straight Out of Locash, a parody of NWA's Straight out of Compton which is absolutely hilarious, Sweat From My Balls, pretty self-explanatory and other hits from CB4 which make this movie great. If you enjoy Chris Rock or any SNL, this is a must buy. I rank this up with Anchorman, Happy Gilmore and National Lampooon's Vacation in classic comedies that I have seen. If you enjoyed this movie, I also recommend watching a similar but lower budget film called *iggaz With Hats, excuse the title. I think the latter may even be closer to SPINAL TAP and has more over the top themes.

  • Mastermind Review

    The crudity and ignorance of so-called "gangsta rap" is such a self-caricature that it would almost seem redundant to spoof the genre, but Chris Rock and co. effectvely manage to do this with success. The "LoCash Crew's" foolishness and stupidity could easily be mistaken for a real rap documentary. However, I really liked the scene here Chris Rock's father lays down the law about this mockery of ghetto life, which really is not funny at all. I wish some real rappers (some who appeared in this film) would have gotten the point!! The late Eazy (Eric Wright) E, who deserves the blame for inventing this garbage-filled genre and whom this film is largely based on, appears in a cameo.

  • Mastermind Review

    Do you remember a time when people still wore Jheri Curls? When women loved Allen Payne with a passion? When Chris Rock had his original teeth and crack body, and looked like he had 15 cents to his name? When Stoney Jackson was still occasionally working (Theresa Randle too)? When Charlie Murphy was not even close to being as funny as Eddie? When Khandi Alexander looked 20 years older than she does now? When no one knew who Deezer D was (nothings changed on that one, btw)? Well I do. And all of that comes together in the 1993 hip-hop/rap spoof CB4. When this first came out, I was totally unimpressedit starred Chris Rock , who I thought was unbearable to look at at the time, and was directed by Tamra Davis, whose ghetto pass has always been a constant source of wonder and disappointment to me. People were still completely enamored with the South Central phenom Dr. Dre (The Chronic) and Doggystyle by Snoop Dogg was still absolutely HUGE and a must have and play in everybodys car. It was also written by Nelson George, whom I still till this day dont understand why was deemed the voice of hip hop culture. So of course, no one was tryna see or hear a project that dissed that whole genre. Everyone was buying into into it, so if you were going against the grain, you were instantly wack. And I think that is the exact reason it did not do well on all fronts at the timeit was too soon to make a satire of the scene. It just seemed like a weak, uninspired diss (but probably not to those who knew better). Like I said, no one was trying to hear that, only Dres beats at maximum bass and treble capacity. But not having seen it since it came out, I realize that is was an amazing statement on the fakeness of gangsta rap, and the whole concept of the South Central culture, which, if you are truly living that life, is absolutely nothing to be glorified. There is even dialogue alluding to that in the film. But it also skewers commercial sell-out rappers (a la Hammer), video hoes, slimy record execs, so-called hip hop early staples like 40 ounces, and so-called militant rap (a la Public Enemy and its offshoots). It is the story of a group of 3 buddies, toiling in their ordinary dead end lives, decide to form a rap group, going through several different transformations (one a hilarious PM Dawn-like riff), until they hit pay dirt with a not too thinly veiled imitation of the ghetto super-group NWA. They go through their breakup and eventually reunion, learning life lessons along the way, with the inevitable YT groupies hanging on to every detail. This film was ahead of its time, and I actually laughed out loud a few times, something that definitely didnt happen the first time around. Some of the ideas were just so absurd and funny to me; Wacky D and his parachute pants and one leg in the air dancing, the musclebound sidekick talking through a voicebox, the heightened sleaziness of Khandi Alexanders Supahead-like groupie. It was all so ridiculous and on point all at the same time. This is a spot on spoof of what was really going on in that scene in the early nineties, but we were too mesmerized by the head nodding to notice. I hope films such as this have a chance to come back in a real way, cause they actually have a sharp eye for human comedy and tragedy melded into one its all the same parts of the pie, and what lies beneath in Black love and culture is much more than meets the eye. Madame Invisible is presently lamenting all the Black writers, directors, and projects that were given visibility in the 90s, and seem to have disappeared of the face of the planet. Can someone please help? I couldn't find the trailer, so here is the scene of Dead Mike in his pseudo-Chuck D video Im Black YAll, and thats all he says, over and over again hilarious!

  • Mastermind Review

    Cuting a smooth groove between smart-arsed satire and anarchic comedy, Tamra Davis' send-up of rap music's superstar fraternity doesn't always hit the beat, but there are enough in-your-face moments to keep the laughs coming, all served up with a thumpingly funny soundtrack and the sort of X-rated one-liners that would make Mary Whitehouse explode. Albert Brown (Rock), Euripides Smalls (Payne) and Otis O. Otis (D.) are three black middle-class boys from L.A., desperate to acquire some street-cred and become rap masters. When the local gangster, Gusto, gets busted and ends up in Cell Block Four, the boys see their chance. Acquiring his hardcore identity and a few tons of gold jewellery, they become CB4, ready to cuss, grab their genitals and glorify violence. On their way to rap superstardom, however, Gusto breaks out of jail and comes after the trio for cashing in on his image, while a right-wing politician targets them for defiling the national game by wearing their baseball caps back-to-front. As the titular trio Rock, Payne and, er, D. are spot on with their piss-take of rap's macho posturing, so too is Saturday Night Live's Chris Elliott as the wimpy white bro' making a "rapumentary" a la Spinal Tap on the band, while Eddie Murphy's older brother Charlie cuts the mustard as a swaggering villain. The film's half-parody, half-tribute approach takes the edge off the satire, however, and this occasionally gets carried away in its own silliness. But if the shift from comedy to social statement is about as subtle as Gusto's ten-gallon condom, the homeboys and girls in the house should love every minute of it.

    Looking for a witty, dead-on parody of the hard-core rap scene? If so, you'll probably watch CB4 ticking off the missed opportunities. This raucous comedy charts the rise of a furious trio of gangsta rappers, CB4 (it stands for Cell Block 4), who take their name from the prison wing in which they supposedly did time. The joke is that their outlaw image is all a fraud. Led by a sweet-faced kid named Albert Brown (Chris Rock), who starts calling himself M.C. Gusto, CB4 are just middle-class kids from Locash, Calif., (that's right, Locash are you laughing yet?), who put on prison work shirts and churlish scowls and con the public into thinking they're hard-shelled thugs. Early on, we see the group trying out various stage personas at a local rap club a scene seemingly inspired by the one in This Is Spinal Tap that flashed back to the band's flower-power days. Except that here, the joke isn't given enough time to settle in. The CB4 crew appear for an instant in back-to-Africa dashikis, then with shower caps on their heads (are you laughing yet?), and then the routine's over. A little later, they're rapping in a car along with a Run-D.M.C. tape a scene obviously inspired by the ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' sing- along in Wayne's World. Except that here, nothing crazy-silly is going on; the tape player just starts playing at the wrong speed. Finally, we get the obligatory mock video clip: It's a rape-and-pillage fantasy called ''Straight Out of Locash,'' and it features the rappers strutting along Los Angeles back , alleys, sticking their ferocious mugs in the camera, dissing the cops... but wait a minute, it looks exactly like a real rap video. It was at this point that I began to realize why nothing in this movie is very funny. CB4 would like to be a savage hip-hop lampoon, but, in fact, the film strikes a cautious balance between satire and homage. It can't decide whether it wants to ridicule CB4 or hold the group up as role models. What we're left with is a soggy catalog of rap cliches. Chris Rock has done some amusing hip-hop parodies on Saturday Night Live, but in CB4 he makes an alarmingly ascetic rap hero. With his high, strangulated voice and pretty-boy-scarecrow physique, Rock lacks authority on the big screen, and so the movie has no center. We can certainly believe in Albert as a middle-class poseur. What CB4 never begins to satirize is the character he's posing as: the nihilistic rap hustler whose ''criminal'' image is inseparable from his desire to make a killing in the record industry. You get the feeling that gangsta rap's show-biz intimidation tactics did a job on the filmmakers, too.

      You still can't compare him to Kool G. And he doesn't even do mob rap right. Mob rap right is something like Raekwon, Ghostface, and old-school Jay Z. They told vivid stories with detail, Ross doesn't do that. He's just like every other mainstream rapper. When he's not spitting fantasy coke rhymes, he's does the typical money, hoes, and drugs topic. There's no variety in his shit, once you hear one song, you heard them all. You can't compare him to 90s rappers because they had more diversity in their shit and put out stuff with substance. Point is Ross is crap. The beats are okay, but the rapping sucks.

    CB4 is a profoundly confused movie, combining rap music with a satire of the world of rap. Working both sides of the street, it gets caught in traffic. The film stars Chris Rock and Phil Hartman from "Saturday Night Live," but it doesn't have SNL's smarts -- and worse, it doesn't have any sense of what's funny. On a structural level, it's incompetently written and directed. The story involves three friends from the fictional California town of Locash (get it?), who dream of breaking out of their middle-class backgrounds and becoming rap stars. They get thrown out of the local rap club, run by a gangster named Gusto (Charlie Murphy). And then, trying to get back in Gusto's good graces, they coincidentally turn up at the club at the same time as a swat team. Gusto is busted as a cocaine dealer, and goes to prison. Then Rock has a brainstorm: He'll assume Gusto's identity, his friends (Allen Payne and Deezer D) will also pose as escaped cons, and they'll name their rap group CB4, after Cell Block 4. Meanwhile, of course, the real Gusto vows revenge from prison. Also meanwhile, a local white politician (Hartman) goes after the anti-rap vote. It's easy to imagine how this formula might work itself out, but the screenplay is so slapdash that nothing ever works itself out, and the movie doesn't conclude, it terminates. Along the way there is a lot of rap music, in bits and pieces (including an annoying low-level music track that plays during amost all conversations). There is also an embarrassing attempt to satirize rap. A rap promoter quizzes the guys: Do they use the word "ho" in their music? Call all women "bitches?" Grab their crotches? Adocate violence? Wave guns around? They do? Excellent! Watching this scene is like seeing an SNL skit that isn't working. There are scenes in the film that seem to criticize rap music for its violence, racism and sexism. Yet other scenes seem to celebrate or exploit the same qualities. The images of African-Americans in the movie are especially confused. Many of the women are indeed called "hos" and "bitches," and the female lead, Khandi Alexander, spends much of the film in a push-up bra, either representing or satirizing negative images of black women. The movie's attitude seems to be: If you're smart enough to get the satire, it's a joke, and if you're not, here's a sexy "bitch." The movie was directed by Tamra Davis, who has directed music videos for various rap groups. CB4 appears in videos in the course of the movie, but again the film is confused, and doesn't know wether these videos are the real thing, or parody. The result is a compromise: Cliched examples of the real thing. Meanwhile, the plot limps and crawls toward a conclusion it will never reach. Some of the blame for a film this bad must be laid at the feet of the producers, Brian Grazer and Nelson George. Grazer is a major producer ("Backdraft," "Far and Away") and George is a well-known journalist and screenwriter. They took Chris Rock's original idea to Universal. But as producers, they didn't do their jobs. They should never have allowed shooting to begin until a professional screenplay had been written and the vision and tone of the film was clear. This is the kind of movie that tries to shoot itself in the foot, and misses.

    He just isn't a great artist. His lyrics consist of undercooked bland and shallow mafioso references, about cocaine as if we're still in the cocaine era in 2014. He has no real personality or direction, sometimes he's a mafioso boss, sometimes he's a trap lord, sometimes he's big meech, sometimes he's john gotti, sometimes he's scarface. The reason I can't fuck with him if he's fake is because if he never experienced the shit he claims (which is obvious), then it means he's pushing bullshit and brainwashing shit into people's heads for the soul purpose of money, because he obviously doesn't believe half the shit he says himself.
