  • Love this show and this episode was one of the best I\'ve ever seen. Clever, suspenseful and authentic in every way, it takes you inside the rapper\'s world in a very specific, detailed way but also gives a story anyone could understand and be moved by.

    Fantastic! A dirty, rap mogul gets his comeuppance in what might be the best episode of the series, which I love and wish was never cancelled. Seriously dark and edge-of-seat action makes this a must see. Doesn\'t hurt that Mario Van Peebles kicks butt as a dirty cop and outdoes his performance in the pilot. The visuals are super-cool, the editing is fast-paced and the characters are right out of the real world, not just the rap world but the world of los angeles. It\'s a rap related story that is smart and cool enough to resonate as a universal story that you can\'t turn away from once it starts.
