Synopsis by Mark Deming
Hip-hop group Mobb Deep take its talents to the screen in this hard-edged urban drama with music, produced by Prodigy and stars other members of the crew. Fresh (Big Noyd) is a rapper who grew up in the gritty environment of the Queensbridge Housing Projects. Fresh's tight flow and street-smart rhymes have earned him a powerful local reputation, and he has signed a seven-figure deal with a major record company. Dealing with his new-found fame and fortune while trying to stay true to the street, however, isn't easy, and Fresh's tightrope walk between the two sides leads him down a dangerous path with violent consequences. Murda Muzik features new music from Mobb Deep, as well as tracks from 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and Nas.
