Who's going to clean up the mean streets? That would be Mack (Max Julien), a smooth talking hustler who's good with the ladies and good with his fists. When Mack gets out of jail and tries to pick up with the pimp life he left behind, he finds too much competition and too much disrespect. He calls on his brother (Roger E. Mosley) and wise cracking pal Slim (Richard Pryor) to help him bust a move and take care of business. It's raw survival where there can be only one king of the urban jungle.
