Docu-thriller about the life of the New York Gangster known as 'The Real 50 Cent'. The film examines the cultural background to not only Brooklyn's gang culture in the 1980s, but also by definition the links it has with Hip Hop music today. From Eric B and Rakim who were running with the same gangs as 'The Original 50' to the biggest artist of today, who in tribute bears his name. Reconstructions, extensive interviews with those already mentioned and more consolidate the connection between the story of an infamous gangster and the music genre of choice of today's youth. It is not only a must have for all hip hop fans the world over, but also an extremely credible insight into an incredibly dangerous world.
