      Worst movie ever?! Not even remotely close. I loved Belly. Yeah, the storyline got a little corny near the end, but the Cinematography was killer. The Soundtrack went super hard as well. Shit, Hype Williams even paid homage to Gummo in that bitch! To call it the worst movie ever is preposterous. I can EASILY name 100 way worse movies.

    my neighbor's mother makes $80 hourly on the computer. She has been laid off for eight months but last month her check was $15893 just working on the computer for a few hours. imp source WWW.Fb39.COM I have Lupe's first 2 albums to go back to if this is a disappointment. Lets wait and see before making any assumptions off what Lupe is saying.

    NAS IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. IF YOU DON'T AGREE, YOUR EXISTENCE IS INVALID.

      I agree. Nas is the greatest, Eminem just disses everyone and talks about his daughter and his tough upbringing, Jay Z just says how much money he has and how he is the greatest with mediocre lyrics, Biggie only had 2 albums, Kanye is just there and the rest follow up.
