Storyline

Gena Hollins dated a drug dealer once. Then he started beating her. These days, Gena has no intention of ever being any man's trophy again-no matter how much money he has, how nice his ride is, how sweet his talk is. Instead, she lives contentedly in a poor section of Philadelphia with her beloved grandmother, Gah-Git, who raised Gena after her mom died of a drug overdose. Gena's almost done with her bachelor's degree in English, after which she hopes to pursue a writing career. Her life isn't flashy. But Gena knows firsthand flash ain't all that. Then she meets Quadir Richards while out clubbing with her wild-child, Sahirah. He's a drug dealer. He's rolling in money. His ride is sweet and so's his talk..

Should have been on BET or TV1 just saying
12 September 2017 | by moniek-08384See all my reviews

Compared to the book this movie isn't what I hoped for while the book left you wanting more while the movie fell flat and tons of things were left out (with that being said I understand they have a budget & have to put so much in a certain time frame but DAMN) & whoever did the editing & frame shots SMH this would be better off on TV1 or BET but def not movie theater material Columbus Short as Qua did a good job as a couple of others that were casts such as Jamaar Simon as Rasun Qua's right hand man was well played, Nelsan Ellis as Tarik which could have had more scenes but did a great job, Aundra Fuller as Jerrell played the hater/wannabe they all played their parts but some of the other cast mates could have stepped it up a bit more Sahirah played by Nafessa Williams did a good job as the average gold digging hood chick looking for the next come up even Gena's little cousin Bria (played by Iyana Halley) was more convincing & believable than Gena's character there wasn't enough emotion or life to her she was dry (SORRY just my opinion) but hey it is what it is I do think this film could have been as big as Juice, Paid in Full or Boyz in the Hood (which are Urban Classics I might say) with the right people behind it I hope that if there's a possibility of a sequel that they have a bigger budget & a better production team because I was highly disappointed 😔
