The music of hip-hop, as well as the style of the genre's most influential artists, is deeply rooted in inner-city crime and urban street life. Unfortunately, sometimes music's biggest stars land themselves behind bars as a result of their rough lifestyle. KRS-One narrates this film from Peter Spirer, as he goes inside America's toughest prisons to explore this phenomenon. Spirer also interviews rappers who have served time, including Beanie Siegel, Prodigy, and Slick Rick, to get their story. 99 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; outtakes.
