  • riley saving his favorite rapper...

    9.8
    you gets to know the character gangstalicious and discover that he's really a punk...i see similarities between gangstalicious and fifty cent :fake gangstaz with lots of cash,gangstalicous also gets shot;then "eat dirt" (gangstalicous ' s ennemie) reminds us of 50's rival JA RULE;and also, the scene when gangstali's crew fights the music awards reminds us about what happened with young buck protecting docta dre...even if @ the begginin' of the episode is written dat gangstalicous was referede to no rapper!(thinkin' of it,gangstali's look is quite similar to fabolous' s look!

  • Life imitates the artless when bullets fly in a feud between rap stars.

    The Freeman kids are watching a t.v. special on rapper Gangstalicious and his hope for a change from his aggressive ways, when an update on the music news informs them the star has been shot yet again.



    This incident happened during a stage show and was mistaken for part of his new song by the baffled crowd. It so resembled the lyrics to the man's new single that it was almost an hour before anyone knew to call for help.



    The shooting comes on the heels of the artist's longstanding battle with E-Dirt, who claims to come from a grittier background and therefore wants more credibility with the public.



    It remains to be seen whether this chicanery will lead to a truce or to further tomfoolery between the rappers and their fans.



    The writing is just hysterical in this one. I haven't been into all the episodes of this series, but this one is a big step up.moreless

  • I didnt really like this episode that much.

    5.0
    Huey was hardly in this episode so most of the comedy came from Granddad and Riley. IT wasnt really that funny except for the I got shot Raps song and the Way Riley finally realized that Gangstalicious wasnt a real Gangsta that was kinda funny, The climax thingy was really really weird though i would have never suspected Gangsta licious to be gay The crappy shots of linclons crew was hilarious though. It also seemed kinda shorter than most episodes do ( except for trial of R. Kelly) so i wonder why that was. six more words six more words.moreless
  • great episode

    In the beginning there is a disclamer for this episode, which is very very funny, because soo much of this episode really could happen. Pretty much what happens is that Riley goes to visit his favorite rapper in the hospital and some thugs come and try to kill Gangstalicious. I think the most important scene of this episode is when Gangstalicious and Riley are locked inside the trunk and Gangstalicous talks about how he really wanted to be a tough rapper, and then he found out he wasnt really like that. This is the most moving part of the episode because its soo real. ...well dats juss mah 2 cents bmoreless
