Decent made for TV movie
20 February 2003 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Play'd: A Hip Hop Story isn't that bad of a made for TV movie conisdering it's about hip hop and gangsta rap. Rashann Nell and the late great Merlin Santana are both great in the lead roles while comedic actor Faizon Love is pretty scary as a Suge Knight type. If you like rap music then check this one out.
