His beautiful fiancee, Carmen, a Baruch College student, befriends a classmate who has an an investment-banker boyfriend named Jack Wimmer. Victor meets Jack, and they instantly connect.

Title: Prison Song
Cast: Q-Tip, Mary J. Blige, Fat Joe, Harold Perrineau, Elvis Costello
U.S. Box Office: ???
Summary: The American dream is at odds with the American justice system in this story of the deterioration of the soul of one inner-city African-American male. Raised primarily in group homes, Elijah (Q-Tip) lifts himself up through art and education. When a full college scholarship is revoked, frustration and anger takes over. Fighting with another youth in the group home, he accidentally kills the other boy. Sentenced as an adult, the stoic Elijah now attempts to free his broken spirit through art once again as he serves his 15-year-to-life sentence. Rapper Q-Tip conceived and stars in this critique on the prison system and the idea of American justice. Characters allow the audience into their thoughts by breaking into song with solemnity in a manner that could introduce a younger, more jaded audience to the musical format. Darnell Martin (I LIKE IT LIKE THAT) offers compassionate direction and supporting work is provided by Mary J. Blige, Elvis Costello, and Danny Hoch.

Summary: Latin hip-hop stars Fat Joe, Cuban Link, Angie Martinez and Michael Wehrhan all star on this combination music, action, and drama video. Love blossoms in the unlikely setting of a nightclub called Domain, where Sam (Sasha Knopf) and Alex first encounter one another. The attempts made by Sam's mother to keep the couple apart set off a string of violent incidents that culminate in a spectacular climax. BLAZIN' captures the frenetic energy of the New York City streets and Latino neighborhoods, portraying an exciting moment in pop music history--when Latin hip-hop is about to break through to a mass market. This is thus both an important document as well as a fun piece of entertainment.

Title: Urban Menace
Cast: Snoop Dogg, Fat Joe, Ice Cube, Big Pun
Summary: A preacher (Mr. Dogg) seeks revenge after his family were killed and his church burnt down by a local crime syndicate in this hip-hop soaked action/horror feature. Despite its all star urban music cast, the film is a huge dissapointment and RapCentral do not recommend you buy this one, we didnt liek anything about the movie and its worldwide reviews seem to think the same as RapCentral.co.uk do aswell. All we can say is stay clear unless you are a huge fan of one of the actors, but even then only rent it!

But in reality he's a farm-bred white boy from Iowa who lives with his parents, deals baking soda in the men's room of the local nightspot and raps, rather poorly, alone in his bedroom. His two friends, James and Trevor, have also convinced themselves that they are the urban rappers they see on MTV. Their collective dream is to live in Cabrini Green, a notoriously dangerous Chicago housing project, where they would like to finance themselves by dealing drugs. However, when the trio finally make it there, reality comes crashing in and teaches them some painful life lessons.
