Chew wanna rap or what?
This movie chronicles the artistic and spiritual odyssey of a small-time marijuana dealer and rapper who faces a lengthy prison sentence after being caught fleeing the scene of a drug-related shooting. Prison turns out to be even more terrifying than what he imagined. He uses his rap poetry to avoid getting beaten up, makes friends with a pretty female teacher, and hitches up with her when he gets out on bail.

Ian Douglas: I fail to understand the awards and high ratings, maybe it is more meaningful for American audiences. Two critics walked out of the preview. There are two messages in the film, both aimed at American Blacks, but they could have made a 5 minute short to deliver that. The picture frequently goes in and out of focus, I'm not sure if this is incompetence or some advanced filmographic metaphor...
