Synopsis by Mark Deming
One man's efforts to get ahead on the streets lead him into a life of danger in this hard-hitting urban drama from Roc-A-Fella Films, the production company run by top hip-hop artist Jay-Z. Beans (Beanie Sigel) is a member of a Philadelphia street gang who has had enough of his life of poverty. Determined to get ahead by any means available to him, Beans steps to the wrong side of the law and begins selling drugs. Forming a crew with his friends and fellow gangsters called the ABM ("All 'Bout the Money"), Beans and his partners soon become the new rulers of Philly's underground economy. But with success comes competition, and Untouchable J (Jay-Z) and Dame (Damon Dash), the leaders of an establish drug-dealing crew, decide the ABM are taking more than their share of the business, and begin retaliating with violence -- with both the ABM crew and Beans' wife as targets. State Property also stars Memphis Bleek, Omillio Sparks, and Sundy Carter.
