I thought about it for a minute....... nah! I could conjure some clever unique style of critique of this film but I won't even do it.

The genuine article at best talks about his exploits better than anyone could but his children, business partners and key women in his life account for a few pivotal moments that is sure to blow your mind to what "MVP" has accomplished beyond what the general public acknowledges him for.

For any of you who do check this out, please share your amazement at how much of a fearless maverick, revolutionary artist and master marketer this Man was and is to this "Blaxploitation" movement we document and towards "The Movement of movement" in general. This doc is a Baaadaaassss Song of an equally incomparable badass Brother.
