CB4 (1993)


After many failed attempts to establish themselves as rappers, Albert (Chris Rock), Euripedes (Allen Payne) and Otis (Deezer D) get their big break when nightclub owner Gusto (Charlie Murphy) is arrested. Albert assumes his name and criminal past, becoming MC Gusto, and the trio rises to fame by pretending to be recently released felons. As their fame increases, so do tensions within the group. When Gusto escapes from prison, he is furious at having his identity stolen and vows revenge.

I loved this movie as a child. Those days I did not even know what is hip-hop :)

"Hollywood Shuffle" is a movie that caught me completely offguard. I knew that Robert Townsend had paid for it on his credit card, but that was all. It was hilarious and has been a favorite of mine ever since. Wow, that was a long time ago.
