Synopsis

Hip-hop star Dr. S (Damon Wayans) releases a controversial CD “Shoot Ya Teacha,” which leads to national protests and an investigation by Congress. The movie plays the old cliché of rappers being unfairly targeted for their offensive behavior and lyrics. According to this story, rappers are misunderstood. Their music’s message isn’t about shooting teachers, cops and parents; it’s really about friendship and love. Senator Sprinkle (Christine Baranski) leads a boycott against the rapper’s label owner Ben Feld (Richard Benjamin), causing all kinds of financial problems for Feld. When he ends up in a hospital due to stress, his daughter Marci (Lisa Kudrow) tries to clear his name by getting Dr. S to clean up his act. Soon Dr. S and Marci are in love. Together they decide to fight against Congress.

Dove Review

The movie talks continually about being real and authentic. Here’s some authenticity: This movie is filled with distasteful elements, and the acting, story and production are sorry.
