Quotes

Johnny J: Pac was enjoying what every man wants to enjoy, every man, every woman - and that's called success. You know... when you get it, you gotta enjoy it to the fullest. You're not promised tomorrow, so let me drive this nice fancy car, let me sport this nice jewelry, let me do this. Let me... you know... have a bottle... you know... a couple of G's in my pocket.

A good informative flick
11 December 2002 | by y2jmann01See all my reviews

This is without question the best documentary since Beyond The Mat. It's informative, truthful, and intense. The language can practically go insane at some parts, but if you are mature enough, you will really enjoy it.
