Some of today's most successful hip-hop stars have something in common, besides successful careers. They've all been shot and lived to rap about it. From the ghettos of Philadelphia to the boardrooms of Los Angeles, Number One with a Bullet is a feature-length documentary that pulls back the curtain on gun violence in hip-hop America. The film follows five rappers who've survived being shot (Young Buck, B Real, Obie Trice, The Last Mr. Bigg and 40 Glocc) as they take viewers back to the scene of the crime and into their darkest hours. They are joined by a diverse cast of hip-hop luminaries (Mos Def, KRS One, Ice Cube, Prodigy, Jerry Heller and more), community activists, police officers, doctors and citizens to expose the physical, mental and emotional scars of gun violence in the streets and in the music.

Uncomfortably up close and personal.

I live far outside this world, so where the cameras went into the neighborhoods where the shootings occurred felt a little dangerous - even one of the subjects commented he needed to get out of there before his shooters came back to finish the job. The subtext of children in images throughout was chilling, and the sprinkling of medical insights provided depth without deviating from the main storyline. I didn't expect myself to experience any sympathy, but I did and found myself trying to justify those feelings. Carefully and thoughtfully told stories woven together - a must see especially for anyone who thinks this subject is too far from their world.
