    I truly enjoyed this movie. I feel as though it provided a real life insight as to what goes on "backstage," just as the title entails. I think this movie shows youngsta's that it takes more than just rhyming words to get into the rap hustle. It also shows that hiphop is not just dancing and rapping...it shows the business aspect and the emotional aspects. And for those that say this I truly enjoyed this movie.

And for those that say this is nothing but badgering women to strip naked... trust and believe...these girls are DYING to strip naked for these guys... they don't have to badger SH**. These rappers are men... just as any other men...don't hate.. they just have something most don't. I Love you Jigga Man! I love you sexy Dash! Masalaama Beanie! Expand

  1. While their often-unclothed bodies are visible, their faces are replaced with digital "buttons" saying things like "Your ad here."

    Lacks sufficient appeal beyond niche aficionados of its featured performers.

    An entertaining trip, one for which fandom in the genre isn't necessarily a prerequisite, though it doubtlessly helps.
