See, ya are what ya are in this world. That's either one of two things: Either you're somebody, or you ain't nobody.
- Frank Lucas, American Gangster
It is now 3:15 am here in AZ, and I just got back from the premier of a movie.
Not like famous people were there or anything but nonetheless. The guy who introduced the movie (Cine Capri baby) said we were the first crowd to see the movie in the entire state of Arizona.......YEA BOYYYY. Even though its not true, I'ma just keep telling myself that we were.
The movie though, was GREAT. Honestly, it was Denzel's best. I think its safe to say that.
The whole time, I never once looked at my phone to see what time it was, NOT ONCE. Eyes glued to the screen at all times. Even where there was no shooting or titties bouncing or cutting of the heroin bricks.......I was paying full attention.
From his quick rise to greatness filling Harlem's needs for that "BLUE MAGIC", to his fall, that movie was greatness.
The cast too was pretty tight. Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Common, T.I. RZA, Cuba Gooding Jr.
Could have found someone WAYYYYYYY better suited for Cuba's part, everytime i see him I think of Snow Dogs, he just dont come of as gangsta anymore, specially after that. The Boyz In The Hood days are no longer brotha. but i digress....
All of D.Wash's family in the movie, the crooked ass cops. Congrats everyone, round of applause.
Ive only clapped at the end of three movies while watching them in theaters. Hotel Rwanda, Borat, and now this.
Now the only thing left is the "oh F him cus he a snitch" mentality. Which the real Frank Lucas, and his enemy Leroy "Nicky" Barnes (Went by Nicky in the movie), did to shorten their jail sentence.
Now all these people these days are all against snitching until it affects them. When the opportunity knocks on their doors. They jump all over that shit. But when its not them or anyone they know......F it, who cares, don't snitch. SHUT UP!!!!
Best believe that if I ever get an opportunity to lower my sentence to turn in other bad people.....DONE. Don't even ask, I'll do it. I'm not trying to go to jail for someone else, or suffer for someone else. I'll bring as many people down as possible. and thats exactly what he did. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
And if you snitch? you die right? haha, you gonna die anyway playa. would you wanna do it behind bars, or in the real world. Your choice.
THE MOVIE WAS DOPE. 9 out of 10 BABY. There's no such thing as a 10. sorry haha.
