Stan B. (badmoviemaven) from WESTERVILLE, OH
Reviewed on 12/9/2009...
This movie is so wonderfully bad. The rappin' is horrible,the acting is horrible, the story is horrible. Seeing a young Ice-T rappin' his skinny ass off is not to be missed. Mario Van Peebles is such a likable guy, you can only feel sorry he took the gig. His crew is full of
over-acting knuckleheads that go through this movie trying to help out the hood. This movie is not to be missed.

The Greatest Fake Rap Movie Ever
MikeGibbons | Orleans, MA | 04/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Oh baby, this is the one. An incredibly phony rags to riches rap movie complete with all jewish screenwriters and director, Mario Van Peebles sportin' a Jheri curl, old white people getting this movie is a CLASSIC!!! This is the Star Wars of cheesy mid-80s rap movies. I have seen this movie over 100 times and I pick up something new every time I watch it. I can't recommend this movie enough, but if you ain't down with Cheese, don't bother. This is not a movie for serious people."

"Joanna Gardner was in one of the scenes singing with Eugene Wilde. They sounded wonderful! Joanna is definately a star and anyone that workd with her will be delighted! Her voice is definately phenominal!"

"There area few pioneers in the movie - thats cool. I hate to say it, this movie was stupid, even back when it was produced. Just watch Krush Groove, its way more entertaining."
