"Gangsta" Documentaries...

Ride or die, Beiotch!!

I've been watching alot of what I call "Gangsta" docs lately. No, I don't mean "GangSTER" as in mafia, I mean "GangSTA" as in Black criminals. Many are interesting and informative. Some of the one's I've seen are:

a) Infamous Times: The Original 50 Cent (Yes, there was a "50 Cent" before the rapper.)
b) Rayful Edmonds, III: The Rise & Fall
c) Game Over: AZ, Rich Porter, & Alpo
d) The Guy Fisher Story

All of these guys were major drug dealers (Except for 50 Cent. He was mainly a "Stick-up" kid & killer.) and the docs shows their rise to "stardom" and their, in most cases, deadly fall.

They were done just like a doc should be, though probably on a budget, which brings out the reality to them. They turned out pretty good, even though some of them tried to make excuses for them on why they did what they did.

Believe it or not, the docs aren't too biased towards the subjects in question. You do however, have the people who knew these people saying how nice and sweet they were and how they had a big heart and were really sensitive. I guess that's expected.

Too bad they didn't show their "sensitive side" to their victims.
