Synopsis by Mark Deming
The violent underside of life on the West Coast is brought to the surface in this hard-hitting piece of "reality video." The Murder Show features real and uncensored footage of riots, street violence, and dangerous run-ins between known criminals. The video also offers an unflinching look at the West Coast rap game, where producers and labels battle with artists (as well as one another) for money and control, and the struggle for recognition can lead some artists to the wrong side of the law.
