Comedy superstar Chris Rock (Lethal Weapon 4, New Jack City, Saturday Night Live) stars in CB4, an off-the-hook, hilarious look at the world of Gangsta Rap. Rock plays Albert, a.k.a. MC Gusto, leader of the hot new rap group CB4 (short for "Cell Block 4"). The trio of CB4 - MC Gusto, Stab Master Arson (Deezer D) and Dead Mik (Allen Payne), are living large as their hardcore albums blow up the charts. Their rise to fame takes an unfortunate turn when they're caught up as subjects of a documentary by corny filmmaker A. White (Chris Elliott) and victims of a political campaign by Republican Virgil Robinson (Phil Hartman). And when the reality hits the streets that these cats are just three middle-class kids posing as ex-con thugs, their world of money, power and respect takes a beat down in the most embarrassing and ludicrous ways. This outrageous "rapumentary" is packed with cameos by real O.G. rap legends like Ice-T, Flavor Flav, and Easy E, and studded with special guest appearances by Tommy Davidson, Halle Berry and Shaquille O'Neal. CB4 is a hysterical stroll through the streets of hard-core hip-hop.

CB4 promises sharper satire than it actually delivers.
