Baller Blockin' (2000)

  • B.G.
  • Jeanette Branch
  • Juvenile
Baller Blockin is head and shoulders above any other movie produced by a rap record label. While the movies produced by the No Limit label get all the press, or lack there of, Cash Money's attempt at a movie dwarfed anything with Master P's name on it. Some might even include gone in 60 seconds on this list.

Baller Blockin followed a well tread path and kept it simple. They also did themselves a favor by not asking to much from their rappers, oops I mean actors. Since the dialogue sounded like a rap song without a beat, the acting was almost believable.

The way our heroes figure out who to kill in the end is just one more reason to love this movie. It is truly a classic portrayal of the persuasive powers of a woman. In my opinion a lot of people who will never see this movie would probably enjoy it.
